My Approach to Coin Photography
by Mark Goodman


Introduction

Coin photography has come a long way in the last few years since the arrival of digital cameras. Digital cameras allow virtually anyone to take good
photographs of the coins in their collection. The available cameras have high resolution, good macro features and can be purchased relatively
inexpensively. There is no need for film and you get the instant feedback of having the photo available for immediate viewing.

In the time that I have been photographing coins I have come a long way. I started out like everybody does and have taken some horrible
photographs. I have learned from my mistakes and have tried to be scientific in my approach to improvement. How does changing settings, lighting,
etc affect the finished product? How do I use this information to improve future photographs?

There is no right way to do things and a technique or a look that I like may not work for you or your equipment. Because of this, I will try to keep the
information as general as possible to keep it relevant for all cameras and setups. The goal is to understand the concepts behind the photograph. This
will allow adaptation to new coins and situations that you may come across.  MORE >>>   http://browncopper.com/

This is a great article and I already placed a link in another thread last week. This approach is much better for visibility and I recomend that all coin collectors read this article as it gives good insight into what coin photography is all about.

The coming of digital Photography has been a real blessing for a guy like me.  It has allowed me to play around with different methods and settings, and come up with something that will work.  Instant feedback is the greatest, for it really helps the learning curve.  All for the price of some electricity to charge the batteries.  This is one area that the encroachment of technology into my life has no down side.
