  8. Lighting Tips

    I wanted to start this thread to see if I could get any bites on maybe some of the more Expert Marble Photographers sharing a picture or two of their lighting rigs.

  12. What am I doing wrong?

    I can get somewhat decent pics of certain marbles, leave all settings the same and switch out mibs and get bad shots. I don't like the large light reflections, but not having a flash keeps me limited to using these lamps. Anyway, look at the brick photos....they are not too bad, although nothing...

  15. What needs to be in the picture(s) for identification, appreciation?

    This was asked a while back, but I'm not sure I saw a definitive answer. What views or angles of still photographs will convey enough for identification or esthetic appreciation? -- if there's a source on the Web, I haven't found it -- all links and pointers welcome -- Cat's eye I think I...
