Playing in the studio last night with a couple of animal skulls. I love the textures and tones the bones give, these were shot with black n white in mind. I used a small softbox about 3 1/2 feet above the skulls and feathered it off the the left side to give me the shadows I was wanting. They were laid on black velvet with a tea towel underneath to help contour the velvet to the skull as well as to hold it in place as we moved it around.

I will probably release a few of this as full resolution stock images as well.
