George Washington

My customized 4x magnification macro rig was used to photograph a small part of a quarter, that is, a 25-cent coin in U.S. currency.

A small part of a quarter (25-cent coin in U.S. currency).

The face/head of George Washington appears on one side of the coin. George Washington was the first president of the United States of America.

Tech Tips

The preceding photo …

  • was shot handheld (not recommended for this camera rig). A single external flash unit was used to light the photo.
  • is a “one-off,” meaning the photo isn’t focus-stacked. At a magnification of 4x the depth of field is extremely shallow. The net result is relatively little of the photo appears to be acceptably in focus.
  • is “full frame” (6240 × 4160 pixels), meaning it is uncropped.
  • is an unedited JPG file, straight out of the camera.
