This photo was a quick set up with 7 or 8 quarters on a book on a desk by a window. I wanted to create a really dramatic lighting that really showed the detail and lines on a quarter. I love how prominent the line is on the forehead, nose, and lips of the front quarter is, as it really sets the head off from the rest of the quarter. I also like how there's bright white on the right of the frame and then really really dark shadows on the left. To edit, I first made the photo black and white, then added slight Orton and Lomo effects to help give the shadows a deeper, darker, and smoother look.
