Finally, I was able to capture some color on a buffalo nickel.

I know this photo isn't near what many on the forum can do with a camera, but I have never been able to capture color and today I did. I know it's still a little dark, but my lighting sucks. I'll get that straightened out. My attempt today was just for color. GTG if you wish.

    It’s your lighting, but really it’s your exposure.

    You're getting some good detail there Jim, but you need a bit more light. PM me, and I'd be happy to give you a couple of tips on lighting and angle that would make your photos a bit better. Great effort though!

    Coin photography is really difficult. Kudos to jesbroken for asking and putting it out where he's at right now trying to figure it all out.

    I appreciate the advice, but know that I am working with a Canon Powershot SX 530 HS. I have a Canon Rebel T6 with a Canon Macro Lens EF 180mm 1:3.5, which is so far over my head that I cannot use it. I have had Mark's book forever and just can't seem to grasp this camera's operation. So with the powershot, my useage is limited to auto mode and positioning of lights. I have a small camera stand which helps with my shaky hands, but I so wanted to be able to use the camera remotely and view the action on my computer, but not to be. So, I didn't want anyone to think that I was capable of more than a very weak beginner.
    Thanks again.

    I’m one who could improve my photography, so I applaud not only your efforts, but equally for posting them here.
