Treasure Chest Thursday: Another Coin with Different Lighting

Here’s another comparisson of the same coin under different lighting conditions, much like the previous Treasure Chest Thursday post. The first example is using a black backdrop, artifical light and a light box. The second using a white backdrop, natural light, and a white reflector.
