First post shows gadget I built to shoot coins.
the following post are pics that I shot. I need lots of help so all comments are welcomed. .
Thanks Big Ed


Now that we got all the bugs figured out we can start over.LOL
This is the first pic. I took using my new gadget.




Good grief by the time I made it small enough to upload the pic was distorted. see below

I guess the first thing we need to do. Is teach me how to upload images. I clicked the upload image.
I got the browser and clicked on the pic. that I wanted. I thought it uploaded but didn't. I tried twice still no luck.

There must be something else I am not getting. All my pics are under 50K.

file size & name are the most common I believe. Here is the link to the tutorial about Uploading Images

I think the WB would be a good place to start especially on the nickel picture. first question is What camera and lens are you using? and then what settings are you using? Full automatic or manual settings? I really like your setup and I bet once you get your settings dialed in you will be producing some amazing shots. The camera is kind of shaped like my Canon t1i but the lens part doesn't look like any lens I have seen for the canon EOS camera's

Another suggestion is to remove the coin from the flip to take the picture.

I like your set up. Interesting.

Bryan1315 I am using a Samsung NX10-QSM-SEA. I was using auto when I took these pics. The camera came with a zoom lens, I don't no the model I will have to look. But it is standard for this camera. I have went to a couple of good coin photo pages on the net and now know I will have to learn how to program my camera. That should be fun. Will post new pics after I get everything messed up. LOL

I know now that I will have to put the gloves on and take the coins out of the holder.
Thanks for all the good response. I love this forum.
Thanks Big Ed

Here are some new photos after playing around with light and camera settings. Getting better one step at a time.
Thanks Big Ed.
