    I was having trouble getting a good exposure, but made it work. I would love any advice you could give. 🙂

    ISO 800

    Here is the photo. I don’t know why it didn’t work.



    It is very nice, some kind of light is shining on the top it’s kind of distracting and on the side it is a little fuzzy.
    but other then that it is pretty 🙂

    That’s a pretty stone @elianafranzenburg! What type is it?

    You mentioned you where having trouble with your exposure. (I know the feeling! Lol.) Since it’s a stationary object you should be able to position your camera on a tripod or other stable object allowing you to be able to lengthen your shutter speed considerably. Then you could lower your ISO to something more like 100 which would give you a higher quality image. I wouldn’t think you’d need quite a large aperture either – maybe try something more like f/4? I’m not in the situation, but I’d try something like that if I was shooting it. 🙂 Maybe stepping back from your object a tad would help it all to be in tack sharp focus. Nice photo! 🙂

    Thanks for the tips! @creative-click-photography my mom said it’s an amethyst. I re-took the photo using your advice but I started a new forum for it.

    You’re welcome, @elianafranzenburg! Ahh, I thought it looked like an amethyst. I have one of them too. 🙂

    That’s really pretty! I’d make sure it was evenly lit too.
