    Here's what I've been doing lately. I remembered my husband's old coin collection and decided they might be fun to play with. All I had in the fridge was Polapan 56, which is sepia film, in 4x5 sheets. I thought it might go well with the coins, even though some of them are silver! :wink: Just playin'.

    Unknown person on this US coin from 1909:

    A dime from the British Isles:

    And a penny from the British Isles (this was one tiny little coin, so I decided to literally rip into it to make it seem larger):

    Wow! Way cool. I especially love the first one, with the crumpled leading edge and tattered trailing one. The sepia tone is perfect for them.

    Those are very cool, terri!! How exactly did you do it? I got lost. Did you use a 4x5 camera or did you have slides of these that you printed onto the 4x5 with your daylab or did I just get totally lost.... :)


    PS - really nice to see you back around these parts, Mark. :)

    Hi Mark!! I agree with Orie - don't be a stranger 'round hyah! :wink:

    Orie, I just set all the coins on top of my SX-70 camera case and shot with 50 ISO slide film (Kodak I think). I have a 4x5 sheet film holder that fits into the Daylab, so even though I don't have the 120 Daylab head, I can cheat a little and get this larger format.

    See? You weren't lost at all, I'm just a crappy explainer. :p

    Glad you liked them, I had fun with this project.

    Yeah Im with orie, how in the heck....

    But I have to say I love the second one the most, the separation down the middle really does it for me.
