I shoot most of my photos outside in natural light so that there is no question regarding the true colors of the stones in the jewelry that I offer. Turquoise can be tricky to shoot correctly. Every once in a while a photo opportunity presents itself and if you are quick, you score. This scarab beetle buzzed my head and landed on my antique ruler for 2 seconds. Enough to get one shot. He's pretty. but a little faded...and he looks old. Well, so do I for that matter. He probably thought the same thing looking at me!
