A Reason to love Reverse Proofs (animated photography inside)
As some of you might know, coin photography is one of my favorite parts of this hobby. I genuinely love taking photographs and experimenting with different methods of presenting coins digitally, and I like a good challenge.
I usually pair axial lighting with a normal set up, regardless of the type of coin, so that the viewer can enjoy looking at the coin from both angles. If listing online, I'll feature both images and include a custom coded button so the viewer can switch back and forth between views.
I very much like Reverse Proofs because they look awesome when imaged with axial lighting. In keeping with what I said above and delving into my background with graphic design and animation, I created an animated GIF that slowly transitions between the axial style lighting and the normal set up. I feel that it really helps bring the digital representation to life. I hope you folks like it too.
