A Couple of Examples From the Fossil Shoot

In my earlier post today, I showed the setup I used to start photographing the fossil samples at the Calvert Marine Museum.  I thought it may be useful to show a couple of examples of the images taken.

Keep in mind, these are for scientific and not artistic purposes.  They were shot in the smallest file size available on the Nikon D700 (2,128 X 1,416 pixels) in order to save time and storage space.  I did my best to optimize the lighting to show the features of the specimens, using cross-lighting with two flashes.
