I recently got to photograph a live body-painting show by the very talented make-up artist, Elizabeth Petrou. This was something totally new for me and was really looking forward for this experience. The whole show took place behind a display window so people who were passing by, could experience the transformation of two models into statues. The show was part of the opening for an exhibitionof theGreek Marble Initiative on the 23th January 2014, at Myrό Gallery, Thessaloniki.

Another Banded Argiope spider that i found laying around at some blackberry bushes next to my house. This photo was taken at sundown so i used a ring flash to illuminate the spider. Again i used the trick of placing a black piece of paper behind the spider to cut out the annoying background and make the spider web more visible.
Canon 60D, Sigma AF 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC macro HSM, Shutter speed: 1/200s, Aperture: f/8, Iso: 640
It’s still windy here. Hence the shutter speed and the not so great depth of field. The spider it self doesn’t move if not poked, so i could have used a slower shutter speed and an aperture of f22+ to maybe get the web focused too. This is the last of the 6 spiders i had located around my house…and unfortunately i don’t think it will be here for much longer.
