The top photo is the true color of the shell. These pictures are from my first attempt at using my brother's light tent set up. He was patient and non-technical with me (as per my request. When people talk techie all I hear is "wah wah wah wah wah wah wah wah.") I see the benefits of the light box. I am a crop and crop only editor when I take photos and am not inclined to take it any further so I am not sure it this will pan out for me. I do have an idea for a set up. I will let you know if it works.
I do hope Spring is happening in your neck of the woods! It is trying to here but there is just so much snow in our yard, so it will be a while.
Sunny Thoughts :-D
