    Nice images of a difficult subject- clad coins.

    You've probably mentioned this before but do you use an "imaging box" to control the amount of light reaching your coins?

    There has been some post processing of my shots. I put these together to show the original shots that went into each image .

    Well, they turn out great.

    Where is the coin placed when the images are taken? Below the bellows on the table top?

    In the pic there is a dime on top of the black wrapped shotgun shell I use separate the coin from the background for full coin shots.

    Ahhh, I see it now.
    That is quite the setup. Especially like the red copper wire stabilizing the "barrel", the light diffusers and the cup of Joe.

    Nice cud... Excellent images also... I like your set up... You really get some awesome images... Who would have thought a shotgun shell casing would have a dual purpose
