A fly caught in a spider web


At home, Ipswich
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

We had some flies, and we have a pet spider.

Pet spider is only welcome until she lays eggs... then not welcome.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Sony RX100 II
Lens: Sony RX100M2 fixed lens 10.4-37.1mm f/1.8-4.9 (28-105mm equivalent) @ 10.4mm
Exposure: 1/100" @ f/3.2, ISO 400 (0/10)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Heavy crop
  2. Exposure +0.25 stops, shadows +100 (to bring up the detail of the fly)
  3. Sharpening: Amount +40, detail +100 (really helped with the detail of the hairs)
  4. Noise reduction: Luminance +40, detail +100, color +70 (bringing lots of detail from the shadows also brought in a lot of noise)
