Late night mineral photoshoot. Gotta love the way Quartz and Tourmaline grow together. NFS.
Still working at my photography techniques - I really admire the way that many mineral photographers achieve a “consistent” look across all of their photos. Perhaps I’m unable to do so because of my constantly evolving light setup... and maybe my inner troglodyte that refuses to learn any sort of photoshop. Oh well! I’m still happy with the results that I’ve gotten thus far.
If you’re interested in mineral photography, I highly recommend following @finemineralphotography@mineralphotography@underground_gems @tamaminerals and @okayan96 for some outstanding content! Let me know if there are any other good photographers on Instagram that you think I should be following? ➡️Personal collection/photo
