A simple system for holding mollusk shells and other small objects for photography - https://www.researchgate.net/publication/347950720_A_simple_system_for_holding_mollusk_shells_and_other_small_objects_for_photography
This work was created as part of a series on photographing natural history specimens in a workroom or laboratory, but it should be useful for any project that requires “record photography” of relatively small objects. That term defines the basic purpose of the image: to create the most objective possible representation of an object so that it can compared with other similar ones. It is hoped that this will prove a practical guide that assists museum workers in setting up programs to produce large numbers of high-quality images. Some basic photographic principles are explained and options for equipment and techniques are presented, with specific reference to digital cameras.
Based on this guide.
