great photo Steve. I like the background on these larger shots. Are you using a backdrop now, like a little mini studio?

Thanks Doug. I have a unit set up out in the garage. It is a metal frame with a piece of perspex that curves up from the front to the back. This gives a nice graduated look to the photos. You can achieve different colour schemes of course by using different coloured perspex.

I've just whipped out and taken a shot of the setup...

Thanks Nicola. Not malachite. It is a rock called selwynite. Found in one location in the world - Heathcote, Victoria.
