Shooting spider webs can sometimes be tricky. Exposition is probably the toughest to get right. Camera meters are frequently fooled by the background, and the thin spider web ends up overexposed or blends into the background. What I found to work best is to position a bright web against a dark background, set the exposure to -1.5, and then play by ear (or rather by eye), checking to see if the image is exposed correctly.
