Actually, that was pretty damn cool.  I love his soft box. It redefines Functional Ghetto. LOL!
I wish he had gone into how he can focus stack so well with a reversed lens.  And how in the world do those spiders stay still long enough to get stacked shots?!  When I get close to one, they move almost immediately.
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

Exactly what Doodle just said. But I will add that he has some pretty incredible shots.
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.

That's a brilliant video.
I thought i was game teasing them out with sticks then leaning in with the 60mm... I'm not game enough to let them crawl on my hand, not the Widows anyway, and forget the Recluse. Mind you, if i started getting shots like that, i'd probably forget the consequences:)

I plan on making myself a ghetto softbox just like that when i get home from work:)

That was a really cool video. I'd take a photo of a black widow spider but I wouldn't let that thing crawl across my hand.

Thanks for the video link.  Loved watching it and gave me more inspiration to get the canon 100 L and some extension tubes to get macro shots.
