Thanks, yeah–I’m pretty darn pleased with the results. I think I see relief in the denticles and MPDs as the coin is turned.
This was sorta an accident from shooting with my lighting technique, but I noticed an improvement in relief doing it this way. IHCs have such low relief that normally only a few focus steps would capture much relief at all. But, when you angle the coin, you are effectively spreading the details of the coin over a greater amount of steps, so more detail is captured. You take more shots, but you also collect more relief data–a rough diagram of what’s happening.
