@AnYangMan showed me his photography technique privately, I felt an urge to look into axial photography as well. Without delving to deep into axial photography (there are some excellen youtube videos and tutorials out there), the technique is quite simple: (https://nl.pinterest.com/pin/506514289316912959/?lp=true) So I took a few photo's. Above is the 'old' technique, below the new: Dutch 'kopje' of Jan I (1284-1299) Denarius of Macrinus (detail of throne below) Penny of Heinrich II (973 or 978 - 1024) I'm rather pleased with the increased contrast and 'true' colours. There are some issues with lighting and glare which need to be adressed. So which do you prefer: the 'above' or the 'below'?
