The Spider And The Tower

The Spider on the front of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower, Tokyo, Japan 7/2010.


I made this using widest lens that I carried; The 50mm lens (for 6x6). It was just right for this picture, the wider lens would have emphasize the legs of spider too much.

The film was Pro 160S which has a quite low contrast and neutral color palette.


The exposure was bit tricky as I didn't carry a spotmeter. I took average reading from the lights of the tower and then gave 3 stops more exposure.


Perhaps one step more would have been fine too, giving a little more details to the spider.


I am happy with this :)
