Hi All,  

 

Was on the boards before the change and signed up after the change and somehow i wasn't able to keep my old username so i just added a 1 to the end of it.  anyway, i have bought from many of the people on here and may have sold a few books to others also.  i have a batch of new books that are fresh back from CGC and want to take some pictures of them but i am not happy with the results so far.  too many time my reflection is very obvious or there is light bouncing off the slab etc.    Can I get some suggestions as to the best way to photograph comics.  have some hot bronze age books that really need to be sold.  All help would be welcome....  thanks!

What lizards2 said.

But as I recall from the last thread about this topic (and from my personal experience) keep trying indirect lighting from different directions and just keep changing your view of the book to different angles.

I used my phone, granted the pics are not High Resolution taken with a phone from 4-5 years ago and are only being used as reference and for insurance purposes, however...

Camera technology in phones has come a long way, if you have access to a Google Pixel 3 you do not need much light or a flash which will eliminate glare.
