Post your geocoin photos here

Recommended Posts

It's been a while, but I'm getting ready to send another coin or two out to travel. This time it's Crake's 2006 Suncatcher geocoin, Warm and Cool. Here are my pictures of the Warm version.

Got the Cool version of Crake's 2006 Suncatcher geocoin done too.

The Cool version for some reason was a lot harder to photograph than the Warm version. I'm still not happy with the Cool photos and may try again before I release the coin.

Great Tiki photos, 57 Chevy. I've always liked the look of those but have never gotten one. Maybe I can snag one in the next International Math Trade.

 

I tried again, and here's some better pictures of Crake's 2006 Suncatcher - Cool version.

Ohhh I like the last shots a LOT! What a cool idea!

 

I just ordered a light tent for my photography setup. :laughing: Hopefully will be here later this week and I can start taking coin shots!

Gorgeous photos!! :D I saw a couple tracking numbers in there though. The klomp and the uptik both had numbers that were visible. :blink:

Well done Dmitri. I'm impressed with the quality of the images and the consistency. What kind of setup are you using?

Thanks for all the compliments!

My set-up is actually very simple. I use whatever light is in the room (no separate light source to light the coin). The coin is placed inside a semi-transparent lamp shade. Then, I set my camera on a tripod, set a custom white balance, and shoot the coin with a long exposure so that it isn't too dark. Finally, I sometimes modify the white balance some more on the computer and erase any really strong shadows if needed. Hope this helps!

It's been a while. The 5th International Math Trade just completed and I took some photos of the coins I received in the trade. I've also got photos from last year's Math Trade that I never posted here. Most of these pictures were done quickly and might not be that good, but they do show the detail of the coins pretty well.

Spectacular photo, MotoCycleBoi! I love the composition, the dark background, and the depth of field.

 

Here's my latest. This is my Texas Geocaching Association 2006 geocoin I've had in my collection for way too long. Time to let this one go traveling around the geoworld! :ph34r: Its goal will be to visit places in Texas where my family vacationed when I was young(er). If you find it in a cache, please help it along on its journey.

I finally spent some time photographing another geocoin. This will be the next coin in my collection that gets sent out traveling. It's the two-tone 2007 Hong Kong geocoin made by Derek Wong.

Okay, the 2007 Hong Kong geocoins have been placed into caches now to start their travels. Actually, they already traveled some with me and had a few extreme adventures before being released. A couple of the adventures even had video cameras rolling, so I posted links to the videos in the geocoins' logs. Hopefully these coins will travel far and wide and be seen and enjoyed by lots of geocachers.

Got some more geocoins in from the 7th International Math Trade. I was really pleased with the trades again. If you're not participating in it you should. It's a great way to trade coins. There were over 1,000 coins offered for trade.

 

Here's the Assassin's Respite antique silver and blue:

And I was lucky enough to get a four-piece antique silver/polished nickel Aztek Puzzle geocoin in the Math Trade. This is a giant 4-coin set. Each of the four coins is trackable.

The latest Math Trade coin I got in: Caching on the Moon. This was one of my top picks in the Math Trade because it comes with the deed to a parcel of land on the moon printed on the back of the coin. What a great idea!

Makes you think about 5 generations from now if a rare metal is found on that land.... will it really go to your family when it is mined?

Recently, I found a nice looking geocoin in a cache. Before moving it along to another cache I took a picture.

I believe this is the Cache Icons - Traditional Cache geocoin.
