    I received for Christmas last year a Cannon T6, but still for the life of me still cannot take a decent picture of a coin with it. Birds, Dogs, Humans, no problem but coins . . . nope.

    I've been relying on seller's photos and must even admit to sometimes having paid a slight premium over what I should if the seller has provided a good photo of the coin. In my quest for the ever wanted high-quality photograph I've all but given up on myself. Recently, in perusing our good friend Rasiel Suarez's
    website I made note of his photography services. A quick email and I confirmed he was up to the task. 42 coins went out via registered mail and in a very, very short time he had them back in my hands with stellar photos. Thought you all might like to see a few (well maybe more than a few) and give @Suarez a big shout out for a job well done.

    I think the pics are indeed stunning and show off the coins really well. Hope to share more as threads allow. - I’m in Houston too by the way.
