Spider in the Park

image

Have you ever taken a quick spontaneous shot not knowing exactly how it’s going to turn out? That’s how this image of a spider in the park turned out. My primary reason for being there was to take a few portrait shots with my telephoto lens. While walking under a tree, I came across the spider. Without really thinking about it, I took two quick shots and moved on. Later during post, I realized this is not a bad image at all. Despite not using a macro lens I was able to isolate my subject from the background.
