Thank goodness for that  @Silverlocks . The nugget looks a bit like a bath sponge though.

My favourites are the Kooks, I think.  I've also got a bunch of PM silver I should put up at some point.

Not all that time consuming.  Some lighting setups are more complex than others.  Most of the time I'm doing axial shots it's just with a ring light and a panel or spot for a key light.  Recently I've been doing some experiments with softer lighting to reduce glare and bring out detail on reflective surfaces.

Most of the shots are done with a setup something like this -

Wow that's a compact setup! I like the use of books for a platform too. Looks like fun. is there much post touch up or are the images good straight off the bat with that sort of setup?

Normally you might frig the exposure and contrast a bit and crop the image but usually nothing more than that.  It's compact by necessity as I don't really have anywhere I can set up a studio, so I've really only got the desk to put it on.  Normally I just use tethering software and control the camera from the PC.

Often my copies of Marsh and Spink find themselves doing sterling service as hardbacks tend to lie flatter than the paperbacks in that picture.
