On the PCGS photo above, the key light is obviously coming from approximately 12 o’clock, while on the StacksBowers photo, the key light is coming from between 8 and 9 o’clock. The more you know about photographic lighting, the more you realize how utterly critical these choices are. Both the pictures on the Beatles Album “Meet the Beatles” and the classic scary Vincent Price photos are essentially single light photos (with very little fill). The direction makes all the difference in the world.

Jeopardy smart, no. Portrait and glamour photographer smart, yes.

Good thing you look very distinguished and you're spontaneity makes you a force to be reckoned with. I am deeply sorry the roadside stands you are accustomed to are scarce in Alabama. Would you be willing to concede Buffalo Head's photography skills are up to par, all things considered?

@Buffalo Head Someone is going to have to help me out here as I do not believe he has spoken up.   Another member has availed himself of having 📷's taken by him of his coins and the results, by mutual assent, are incredibly sharp.  I believe they are all buried in one of the Post your recent acquisition threads.  In fact, maybe, just maybe, the professional quality of his coin photos is such that you would have no trouble breaking with long-standing custom and make a purchase solely on the strength of the quality (lighting, illumination of critical details, sharp focus, and maximum size) provided by his photos.  If he were to have access to the S-G '33, I suspect his photos would be re-touched or rejected outright for revealing the true extent of Lady Liberty's leg injury in full, living color.

I know there are some awesome shooters of “coin glamour shots” around. Many are true artists.

Agreed. He is an artist indeed, without the “shmaltz”, which I appreciate.
