Seashells by the seashore. Yeah yeah, anything but.
This seashell was put through its paces in a pre-digital era. No Photoshop trickery here. Using B+W film the shell was allowed to rock to and fro on a platform with 2 floodlights set at 45 degrees whilst using a slow shutter speed.
All very professional and contrived. False colour was added via Photoshop twenty years later.
An image that has stood the test of time.
