Nickel and dimed to death

Well, there are no dimes in the image but this holiday season seems to be taking a toll on the merchants in the area. It appears the post office is suffering as well, online shopping is down, and the economy has not rebounded yet. Maybe the new year will bring better things than this past year.

This shot was fun to play with as I tried several things. Back light only, no flash at all, side lighting only all lighting with no diffuser, and I settled on all lighting with diffuser right. My set up was flash pointed on seamless background using home made snoot set at full power. Flash camera left at 1/8 power with foam core camera right. Converted to B & W


  1. The sixth nickel from the top right is very worn. Interesting from all the other nickels.
