Active Assignment for the week of 19-26 Oct: Show me the money, honey
Maybe you have the only remaining Roman coin with an image of Nero beating Julius Caesar over the head. Or a pile of coins covered in honey. Or a fascinating view of a bee flying away with the brand new 3-dollar-bill. Or .... use your imagination, but show me the money, honey.
Restrictions: You must control the light in the scene (use a flash or use a reflector or include a candle or use a flashlight or ....)
Dare: Use shaving foam in the photo
WIT: A last minute arrangement and submission. Time was short this past week and my computer crashed this weekend, but I still wanted to get something in. The stacks of coins are on a (dusty) glass table top with a flashlight shining up from below. The background is a translucent cutting mat. Levels and saturation adjustments along with some minor cropping.
