Coin Photography Questions
I have been working with a new lens and lighting for photographing my coins. I have always had trouble with slabbed coins, especially proofs. Here are some recent photos from me playing around a little bit. I am really happy with these, especially given the very poor quality of Trueviews on a recent submission.
The Trueview of the 1858 makes the coin look too gold, mine dont show enough gold color. Anyone have suggestions on how to balance that out? Mine is definitely a much closer representation of the actual color though.
This one is still tricky for me, not used to working photos on proof coins.
The Trueview is not a good representation of this coin. The obverse is mostly brown, with some color, the reverse is mostly red. Haven't figured out how to quite capture the luster
if any photographers out there have tips, or resources they can share, I am all ears. Thanks!
