    What and when was your first serious camera?

    That was certainly what I believed at the time and why I bought it rather than an East European one.

    Not easy getting down on my stomach now and even more challenging to get up but it was necessary to take these. hover1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr hoverfly2 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr

    Common garden spider with young

    Thank you Alf and les. These spiders are very skittish usually but were luckily sufficiently cooperative to allow a the number of shots I wanted. I had to lie down and sneak up on them.

    Common garden spider with young

    Common garden spider. 90mm macro with Raynox 250 but focussed out to give a better working distance so probably around 1:1. First is about 10 stacked images handheld and the second 6 shots stacked handheld. garden spider1 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr garden spider2 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr

    What and when was your first serious camera?

    I think this was what I had in mind, a camera good enough to do 'photography' with. My family had an old box brownie that was used to record family events etc but clearly didn't cut it for 'taking photos seriously'

    What and when was your first serious camera?

    I remember lusting after the Olympus OM1 when it came out but finances dictated sticking with my Chinon.

    What and when was your first serious camera?

    Mine was a Chinon SLR (forget the model) bought from Dixon's in 1974. I had just left school so bought it on the 'never never'. I used it intensively for 16 years until it was stolen one day in Amsterdam.

    Middle daughter

    Thanks Rob. So I have added slightly more headroom (as shot) and lifted the shadows just a little. I have also added a mono version. What do people think? I had to carry my stuff on the train up to Shrewsbury from Eastbourne so took minimum. Single shoot through umbrella with an AD200. I hid...

    Thank you for your thoughtful comment. For me the position of the eyes in the frame was the critical thing and at the moment I find tight cropping at the top puts the eyes where I want them. I did go up and down on the shadow slider and settled on this but understand your point. Yes they do grow...

    The focus is what it is but it occurred to me that perhaps the ear was catching too much of the light so I have taken that area down a little bit. Does it help? Gabrielmono2 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr

    Looking close in the lens might be back focusing a little but the eyes seem sharp enough to me. Gabrielmono4 by Peter Dransfield, on Flickr
