New photos!!

7 posts in this topic

I have been practicing my photo skills and have gotten much better thru some practice and trial and error.  But I am nowhere near the skills of the pros and so every now and again I send some coins out to Mark Goodman for some real quality photos.  For those who may not know Mark he was a regular member of the board ATS and has written a book that is considered the bible for coin photography by some.  So I just got back a batch of photos and would like to share a few, most of these were coins that no matter what I just could not get a decent shot due to slab irregularities and in a couple of cases the speckled toning like on the 1909 S/S.  So hope you all like the new photos.

They look very nice! Robec also takes some very good pics. 

Bob is very very good as are a number of people that frequent the boards ATS.

Nice job. I have Marks book, but haven't really gotten started yet. One of these days. 

Read it cover to cover many times, still learning with every shot.

Thanks but remember these are Marks photos not mine, my tries on some of these were awful.

Nice coins, I particularly like the look of the 1909 S/S. I’ve tried my hand at a few coins with similar toning and haven’t been very successful.

Heavy toning like this specked look are super tough, its all in the lighting and lens and I just don't have the right equipment yet.  Its very odd that tone like this for me at least looks very different in hand vs a high res photo, seems like the eye can see through it better than the camera lens
