First post to the forum and I thought I would start in the photography subforum since that's what I'm focusing on right now...

I've recently been active in various other forums with discussions over lighting styles, bellows setups, high resolution lenses, etc. Here is a photo I took last night using a new lighting setup:

Karl...This was done with a Nikon D7000 on a bellows with Nikon 105mm EL-Nikkor lens. Lighting was with two LED's pointed upward at aluminum foil reflectors just above the lens. Not a simple setup, but pretty repeatable and gives a good result...Ray

Sure...here are pictures of the setup from the front, and also one from underneath showing the reflectors. The lights are gooseneck LED's.

Here is a picture of a Philippines 5 Centavo with the same setup but with the LEDs shining directly onto the coin rather than reflecting off the aluminum reflectors:

Is that a medium format camera?

No, just a bellows attached to DSLR. Actually the setup used for the 5-Centavo is a bit different from pictured. I used a Rodenstock Apo Rodagon D 75/4 M=1 lens instead of the EL-Nikkor. But in both cases the camera is a Nikon D7000 APS-C format camera. The camera is not shown on the bellows since I was using it to take the picture!
