Coin Photography

Some excellent advice has been written on the best way to photograph coins. Most of it is by Doug Smith, and it is very much worth reading his pages. The first two pages below cover a little of the same ground, with variations, but this section then goes on to give a lot more detail on how to choose ISO equivalent, aperture, and exposure; how to edit the background; and what other processing of the image might be useful.
