2012, Day 120 - Goldblum

Today was the second Google+ Photowalk and you would think I would be sharing a photo taken today but this has been a crazy weekend so instead I have loaded those pictures into Lightroom and I am posting a picture I took last night.  With the warm weather there have been all kinds of insects out and I have been giving them a little cryo treatment in order to get a little additional cooperation.  This guy, Mr. Goldblum, was a little more cooperative.  I found him exploring on a lampshade so I put him in a little jar and transported him to my photo table near the studio strobes.

When I took the jar away he very happily groomed himself while I took his closeups.  This isn't even a 100% crop, there is more detail in this photo and I struggled with what to remove from the image.  It could have been a full-body shot but then you wouldn't have been able to appreciate the details.  So after a few attempts I decided I like this head-and-shoulders shot the best :)

  1. OMG! I can't believe how much detail you got in the shot. Despite all the editing, the little guy is still really dusty.
