Could anyone help me with the best way to photograph spider webs. I have trouble making them stand out.
use a can of Silver Frost
I agree it's very difficult. I've attached a couple of attempts for you to have a squiz at. Basically I was lucky enough to get some "backlighting". Someone with more experience will be able to provide some better guidance I'm sure!
if you want some drops ofon them, take a spray bottle and spray a fine mist of water over the web. Also, try to shoot against a darker or contrasting background. If you are able, use a flash and get it off the camera, off to one side - underexpose the background and let the flash only the web.
