Had fun cutting and assembling this today.
Client’s partner provided the design which I had to tweak a little so it would cut with laser but but I stayed close to her design
Made from 3 layers – the middle layer is hidden and brings some shadows into the piece
Another piece not for sale.
I just used some images to test the cutting speed on a new supply of thinner MDF I have.
I’m really pleased with the results as I can cut this much faster so the kerf is reduced allowing me to put more detail in.
Aaargh – I thought I had another box of 100 sheets of MDF but must have used them
Ive run out of material!!
That’s a bummer as I just designed this today
Not for sale – just fan art
Made this for my grandson, Lenny
I asked him for an honest critique…and got a “Woah!! That’s sick!!”
I think that means it’s pretty good.
It’s NOT for sale….it’s just fan art and placed here to show my skill level in case you want custom jobs doing
I just made this for my grandson
It’s not for sale – Im not sure who the original designer is and the likeness is probably covered by copyright so…no sale. Fair enough as fan art though for my grandson, I think.
Looks nice back lit also.
Are you an artist?
What about having your work printed and displayed on an acrylic stand?
Prices will vary according to size and complexity but we can assist
Disclaimer: the example is just fan art and not for sale
As a part-time photographer of coins and bullion I found this method best.
It provides an even “through the lens” lighting which can’t be replicated in any other way.
Made from 4mm MDF and finished in black or silver
You can have it ready to assemble (it just slots together and a dab of superglue at key points) or ready assembled (adds to postage)
GLASS is NOT SUPPLIED. You need an A4 sheet of normal 2mm or 3mm glazing.
How to: Axial Lighting Macro Coin Photography
Axial lighting is a term used to illuminate the subject through the lens.
The light source comes parallel to the surface the subject rests on and is pointed directly to a sheet of 3mm glass placed at an angle of 45 degrees. Some of the light is reflected downwards and provides perfect, even, overhead lighting of it.
Some of the light will pass through and it’s important to have something black (or dark) to absorb the light to stop it reflecting back which would then get passed upwards and cause lens flare.
The various images will show the equipment we use.
Important here is the 100mm 2.8 macro lens which gives more room to work with – there is room to place the glass over the subject but under the lens. We couldn’t do this with a supermacro lens like the 65mm.
The glass is normal 3mm thick window glazing. We have taped the edges with insulation tape to aid in moving it.
The glass can be supported using any stand or simply hand held.
We have a laser cutter so made a stand for it. It’s a perfect 45 degree angle to the light and subject and allows our hands free to attend to focusing and exposure.
The copy stand hold the camera and a spirit level is used to ensure everything is lined up.
Different effects can be achieved with different modifiers. Our preferred choice is barn doors with a grid fitted. This keeps the light parallel and shows up more contrast.
It also shows metal objects more as they appear to be if we were holding them. Notice how the silver field (background surface of the coin design) shows the reflections and slight dimples of the metal.
Using a softbox gives a wider field of light and gives a more illustrated result.
