DescriptionAustralian cousin of the black widow spider is the Redback spider (Latrodectus hasselti). My pet redback female spider lives in my shed's door. All I need to do to visit her is to slowly open the door and there she is.Last year she had two egg sacks to guard, this year I didn't see any but, judging by the empty insetcs around her nest, she's eating well... http://arekphotography.blogspot.com/2009/12/redback-spider.htmlCanon EOS 450D with EF 100mm f2.8L macro ISTv 1/80secAv f/7.1ISO 100Canon Speedlite 580EX-II + 430EX-IIConverted form RAW
Arek Rainczuk, Melbourne Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement I’m a PhD candidate in Melbourne, working in microbial genetics. With all the hours spent in the sterile lab I find photography a perfect outlet for my creative side and a reason to take my lab coat off.

I am also available for modest commissions in Melbourne area. I use Canon EOS 7D (450D as a back-up) with Canon kit lenses (55-250m and 18-55mm), Canon 50mm f1.8, Sigma 10-20mm, Canon 100mm 2.8 IS USM L-series Macro, Canon 580EXII and 43oEXII flash units, a decent tripod and a fresh eye. I’m also mastering the secrets of Photoshop CS4
