Clear dewaxed shellac does not add much color. I just finished some poplar drawer boxes with clear shellac, and they came out great.
Lacquer will yellow with time or light exposure.
Most finishes will change the color slightly – and seems drastic at first – but then once it dries, and everything is the same color it looks natural again.

I usually try to match the finish on the rest of the woodwork in the house.
