"Storyteller" - SOLD

I've gotten a lot of requests for close-up views of my shadow box. I am posting them and a description on my studio blog if you're interested.
Lately I've been experimenting with a change in my lighting. I'm using a "daylight" spotlight bulb (still a bit yellow) straight on my subject, and a REAL balanced daylight bulb (fairly blue) pointing up in my shadow box so it sort of bounces around. This gives things an interesting color tilt that I've been grooving on.
