Horseshoe Crab Study   4 comments

I found a dead baby horseshoe crab on the beach and decided to make it the subject of a practice lighting session. The underbelly was particularly challenging because of all the detail.

  1. Gorgeously prehistoric animal.

  2. Great job with the lighting, my favorite is the second image. I am very fond of horseshoe crabs they are cute in there own way especially the baby ones. Just as an FYI if you didn’t already know, this one that you found it not dead but molted. You can tell because the shell is split around the lip and it is light in color.
