Hi, this is a great forum that offers me potential solution to my coin imaging dillema.
As a complete novice, who just explores this method, I have a couple of questions:
1. Coins are small, relatively flat objects, as everyone knows. How do I set up the scene for imaging to avoid ball shadows on the coin? Should I put my coin on a small stand? Should it be put flat or at an angle? Can more than one coin be photographed in one session?
2. Considering the typical coin diameter of 12-45 mm, what size balls should I use? Majority of my coins will be within 16-26 mm range.
3. Should I reduce the number of exposures?
4. Can I use a strong tungsten light, rather than flash? I am asuming, it will be rather close to the object.
Thank you in advance.
