    Amazing what fun one can have with a light box and colored gel sheets!

  4. amazing and very nice
  5. Thanks, Gale and Dave! Someone had suggested that I try using 12x12" colored gels on my light box for a different effect..... It was fun!
  6. Connie, these are really nice. I've tried to take pictures of my own crystal pieces with no success.

    Well done.
  7. Glass is tricky. You need to light it from underneath and be mindful of other light in the room causing unwanted reflections. These crystal pieces were positioned on my light box and the colored gels put on top. In the one photo I also used an orangy-red foam sheet for the backdrop rather than plain black, just to see what would happen... :smile:
