New at fossil photographs


Recommended Posts

Hello! Since the start of the year I have been taking photographs of my fossils. They have improved very much.

 

Do they look good? What can I improve?

 

Regards.

The right ones look like a little bit out of focus?

They look pretty good to me, though I agree some look slightly out of focus and I would be tempted to include a scale.

My main suggestion would be to add a scale. 

 

Your second specimen looks like you used low angle incident lighting from the bottom right. Thats useful for pointing out textures. It does leave the left half of the crown underexposed. I would use multiple pictures, including one with diffuse lighting to make sure everything is evenly exposed.

Alright. Do I add one in online? Or place one beside it?

I place a ruler beside mine, but others use online apps or a mm. grid you can place the fossils on.

Add scale, remove color cast (yellow), better focus, and  crop out excess background. Larger pictures are better.

Measure the fossil in the appropriate manner and type the measurements into the post in mm and inches.  This will eliminate the issue of perspective with 3D fossils.
