I was recently trying to take some macro shots of a red back spider and I was finding it hard to get any detail because the spider is very black !
I was wondering if anyone has some tips on how to bring out more detail in these little critters . I am using a 7d , 100 2.8 macro and an aftermarket ring flash ! my settings were 1/200 F11 and 100 . the shots were indoor with a lamp for focus assistance , any help would be greatly appreciated .
