Beautiful specimen! I'd need a big telephoto lens to take a picture of a spider like that... wouldn't want to get too close. ;o)

On Inner Beauty of the Nautilus in the The Beauty of Seashells challenge (6 comments in total)
In reply to:

Buzz Lightyear: Thanks for your compliments, Ruth. I used a light table to light the shell from underneath, and then shone a flashlight over the top briefly to bring out the details of the top of the shell. The image actually first started out orange/bronze colored, but I experimented with the white balance and found that the cooler hue actually seemed to make the shell "glow" more.

Hey Buzz Lightyear,
I (and many others here, I'm sure) appreciate you taking time to tell us about your setup details on how you executed the photo. That's what it's all about! ;o) I've thought about making a light table, but haven't gotten around to it, yet. I'm always eager to learn, so thanks again for sharing!
Regards,
Mick
