Artist's Description

“Rock Crab – Beachcomber Series”

I’ve wanted to get some photographs of Crabs for years. But I almost never see them at the beach (and I’m usually not looking for them) and when I do spot them they run and hide immediately when they are approached – opportunity lost! But this afternoon while I was scouring the rock platform (at Merewether Beach) for any shells, sea plants or other interesting/attractive things to photograph, I spotted a Crab running in front of me and it hid in a mini cave/rock outcrop. When it came out or poked it’s head out, I reeled off a few shots. It was a late find – around dusk – so I had to use the Flash (and Shutter Priority Mode) to keep the shutter speed above the 1/20 and 1/40 second that the camera wanted to use when in Aperture Mode at this late part of the day.

This original Digital Photograph was captured with a Canon 450D and a 55 – 250 mm lens:
F-stop: f/5.6
Exposure time: 1/100 sec.
ISO speed: ISO-400
Exposure bias: -0.3 step
Focal length: 250 mm
WB: Flash
Flash Mode: Flash, compulsory
Shutter Priority
