@physics-fan3.14 pointed out that I was really lacking contrast and suggested I use fewer lights. I used two instead of 3 and the contrast improved: I’d love to have further feedback/constructive criticism on this second round of photos as I feel they are an improvement but still have the “blowout”/hot spots going on and I’m not sure what to do to fix it while still showing the luster of the coin, which is quite strong. All feedback/suggestions are appreciated. @messydesk @robec @jtlee321 @C-B-D @stldanceartist @Skyman @ldhair - and anyone else I am forgetting. Lots of great photographers here.
