Experimenting with light

An assignment for school was to experiment with light.
What sorts of shadow gives it? How does the light shines through? Does the material look completely different when hold infornt of light?

 

What I notices was the the pictures turn out way more orange than it is in real life, that also depends on the lightsource but also on the whitebalance on your camera.
Thet image here on the left? Right, that’s a shell! And I think this is my most fun discovery, I had no idea a shell could look like this. The outside is beautiful, but the transparency is stunning.
