Night Experiments

Long time exposures can be difficult, especially when you are working with people, or any object that can move. Sometimes the elements that cause some of the worst flaws in one picture, can look quite amazing in a different picture. Recently I have been experimenting with taking pictures in the dark. All of the following pictures were taken at night without the use of a flash. Some of these have been cropped, none of them have been post processed.

Macro Spider and Yucca Seeds

I was harvesting some seeds of a plant that grows behind my parents house and happened to notice a very small spider. He was doing all sorts of poses for me. After watching him work for about 15 minutes I soon realized he was actually trying to catch the breeze and move around from place to place. Pretty amazing all the things that happen in the world that no one ever really sees.

Equipment Used:
