  3. It's challenging. I find I get better photos with indirect sunlight. A macro lens helps too.

  7. You might also want to look at a ringlight flash, or a light box. Neutral backgrounds using cloth or paper would help, as well.

    Happy WW!

  8. I use crystals in healing and am very fond of tourmaline. I have several pieces of raw tourmaline in different colours but of course they look completely different when they are cut! Thanks for sharing!
