    I agree, these are wonderful pictures. I was actually looking at this cap last night, and my jaw dropped when I saw the photos. It is in AMAZING condition! It had me wishing it was a part of my collection...

    Oustanding images, simply outstanding. This should be a reference thread?

    To delve into the slightly technical aspect of getting proper shots of relatively shiny emblems on black caps (and why they are washed out sometimes), the reason is that the skull or eagle is much brighter than the cap, but also much smaller.

    Matters of light reflection aside (this is obviously a problem too), the camera sees the whole scene, which is mostly black, and adjusts to make that particular "light value" correct, so the black looks good, but the emblem is too bright.

    Controlling the light (avoiding any bright light) helps, but on a closeup shot, the camera needs to meter on the emblem in order to expose for the emblem properly, if the rest of the cap is too dark, so be it. The pros will always tell you "expose for the highlights, let everything else fall into place".

    Most of the cameras have light meter settings, which either evaluate the whole scene and try to make the best of it, or you can find the "spot meter" setting, which will "meter" on a small area and get it right, the rest of the scene be damned.

    Back to reflection and excessive light, the more (excessive and focused) light you have on the subject (dark cap and shiny emblems) the harder the job the camera has to get one right or the other. If you have very flat, controlled, indirect lighting (light box?), the camera has a much easier time of it, and will give much better results.

    I will cut and paste this info into the photo thread.

    Thx again FB/Pascal for the sensational reference skull pics, these are some of the best I've seen.
