Behind The Lens

Location
I took this picture in my patio.
Time
It was around 2.00 P.M
Lighting
Shooting outside, natural light is the most important part of a photo. I did use the camera flash, to enhance the spider details.
Equipment
I used the Nikon D7000 and the Tamron 90mm Macro Lens. No tripod , handheld.
Inspiration
I was outside trying my new lens, when I noticed this friendly jumping spider. He was very friendly, almost claiming for a photo. He let me approached him very close, so I was able to take this beautiful photo!
Editing
I normally don't "manipulate" a photo too much. I just boost the little bit the contrast and the colors. Overdosing in post processing is killing the nature of a photo!
In my camera bag
Owning several cameras and lenses I don't have a basic "kit", it's always depending by the trip or the subjects I'm going to take pictures. Normally I have my Nikon D3 S with the Nikon 70-200mm f 2,8 and the Nikon D810 with the 24-70mm f 2,8. A Manfrotto Tripod, an Acratech headball & several different filters are as well inside my camera bag.
Feedback
Macro photography is very difficult, so patience must be on your side. Using several flashes is another important key of macro photography and despite I shot this photo handheld, a solid tripod is highly recommended. Shooting insect is very difficult, because they normally keep moving, but if you are able to get them on focus you'll discover a "new world".
