Just A Shell...._DSC3767

but I still can't get a white background.
Aaaah i now know how ( just not good at execution myself yet) here's what I was advised yo do by VikkiS

Tripod thingy helpful,

Widest aperture
Increase the EV compensation (+/- thingy) until get white
Long exposure
White balance set to what s shining on scene
No flash

Oh and tweak on sliders on Windows program to 'cheat

I love the simplicity of this, and you are the absolute queen of macro!!!

Well it is very nice. I did a white on white challenge this year and no end of fiddling was involved!

I have no idea how to get a white background (especially SOOC), but the shell looks beautiful against this background.

Lovely macro, and helpful comments from JackieR, must give it a go.

Such an interesting shell

I like the softer look with the shadow for this image

Beautiful capture of this beautiful shell. Great background.

nice shot

Still a nice shot - why do you want to get the background whiter?

Lovely shot, I have one of those shells too! Can’t help you with the white though

I think it's good. But if you want to have a white background, then you need to illuminate it.
