Abalone Shell Interior

This is the interior of an abalone shell that I'm documenting for my sister.


I propped this up a little so that I could shine a strobe through the holes at the upper left of the shell. That strobe was a SB600 in a softbox, and I balanced it with an SB700 in a softbox in front of the shell to throw some light on the interior. The strobes were in manual mode, and I adjusted them until I got a look I liked. Strobes were triggered by the pop up flash of my D90 in commander mode.


Other shell pictures that I've taken, using strobes, can be seen in my Shell set.


This looks best when viewed large on a dark background, and you can see it that way by pressing "L".
