Hope you get an Oscar
I left all directions on my comment on the last journal by gherrmann44
OKAY: Here is the body, so you do not have to run to gherrmann44 if you do not want to.
I left an eloquent note on how I have learned to do my photos for NGC notes, journals and the registry if not ETC.
Unfortunately, my note was lost when I attempted to add it to this reply section,
I had written what follows, so I hope this re-do is as wonderful .
I had worked with a production company as an extra, and learned about lighting during the shooting of BL Stryker, the Burt Reynolds Sunday Night Mystery Movie of many years ago. (Columbo era)
I learned that diffused light was the best. My wife, boat and I were just extras, but the shooting went on and on for quite sometime. Blowing up boats, running vans off bridges and so on.
Keeping their lessons in mind after all these years. [if you remember, photoging was like some sort of mystic art up until I worked this out. The result you can make up your own mind. But, because I cannot seem to get an image in this reply, I will write a tiny journal and the picture is taken with this method.
First of all, you must look at the image in your cell phone. If it is two years old or less, you have this capability.
Be sure there is no reflections, from overhead lights, your face in front of or behind the coin. I like to set it on a wood table, or have someone hold it.
1) Use a little bit of zoom, just a little. If you hold the phone too close, it will blur. We will fix this background you captured in a moment.
Instead of moving the camera, move the object until all reflections are out.
Leave a little border of the background.
Then snap your best with your iphone. ( I use a Nokia Windows phone) Just love it.
Then here is the secret. Use the CROP TOOL.
This will allow you, using your finger to bring in or out to include JUST the coin.
Here is the result. GO TO MY JOURNAL I AM GOING TO POST AS QUICK AS i CAN AFTER POSTING THS.
After you have your favorite snap, CROP IT!
You have a crop tool.
