Cross Spider catching prey

Yesterday during some macro shooting – I witnessed the catching of a prey by a cross spider. This spider was
sitting in the middle of the web when a ladybird did fall into in the web.

In a very fast action the spider went to its prey and did start wrapping it in silk. I made some shots from this
actions and you can see silk comming out of her body.

Gin Tonic – product shoot

Hello everybody,

last week – I started my second year photography at Syntra Hasselt. This year focus will be on product, portrait,
architectural & interior, social and company/business photography. The first task was to take a product photo
of a gin bottel, glas and for example tonic. For this shoot we used a softbox at the back  and a softbox at the
left side of the camera.  The softbox at the leftside was held left high above the camera – to avoid a lot of
reflection on the GORDON lable. This photo is just a single picture – no different shoots like you mostly see in
product photography.

Shoot was done on f16 – to have enough DOF – 1/250 sec and ISO 200; small corrections where made in CS5 photoshop.

The final result is :

And of course at the end of the shoot – we had a good gin tonic as closure of the day.

We had an interesting evening and I am looking forward to some more product shots. I will post through the
year some more samples that we have done during the course.

see you 🙂
