Used for poker chips or old age and oxidation. I believe its called tarnish.

Hard to tell the true colour when you have dark photos on a red background.
Use a contrasting background.

The type of light you use will influence the finished colour. Use regular indoor lights and the result is orange. Daylight gives you the best "true colour" plus defuses the light, so if possible, use daylight without any other lighting source for the best results.
ça va bien aller
