he was alive, lol i dont think hed have liked the flash, he was trying to run down the drain as it was.
thanks for the advice, i kinda dont know where to begin with light, but i guess no better time to start experimenting than now!
ahhh ok so there was no chance at all to get a studio shot especially with a hairy spider like this.. ill take a shot of my setup later and post it to show you what i do and how i take the picture.. its quite easy really.. just get a flash and bounce it off the wall and ceiling and stuff its really fun to do.. so have fun experimenting.. trust me.. it took me 3-4 days of experimenting with the flash to get the desired results.. its not easy!!
