@Fartkowski: I use a mixture of light. Sometimes natural light only, sometimes diffused studio flash only and sometimes a mixture of natural light and flash.
@Apophis: Thanks, about as good as yours ;)

Those are really beautiful pictures! Among the best I have seen. Are most of them in their enclosures or did you take them out for their photo sessions?

@ricneto: Just make sure you have plenty of light to aid your camera to focus at high magnifications. Macro photography needs a lot of light.
@exkhrla: 95% of them are out of their terrariums

Thanks for the nice comments!

Hey Taki,

I just looked at your pics again, and I think you may have mislabelled one of your spiders.
The one labelled as "Bonnetina cyaneifemur" doesn't look like one. :?
Looks more like a juvenile B. albopilosum.

Fantastic photos! I really enjoyed looking at them, you have gorgeous spiders. Is your A. seemani quite old? I've never seen one so bulky.
