137|365 A Ton of Change ~ Coins

-- Dear Getty Images, I could easily black out the brand here if you like the concept --

Theme: Coins

Maybe not quite a ton, but still a hefty 5.9kg of change. It took about an hour to sort and stack them as it is so I couldn't be bothered to include the 1's, 10's and 50's.

--- Lessons Learned ---
1. Credit/bank cards work great for moving and squaring coins up. I felt kinda like a coke addict might cutting and pushing coins around my shiny black scale :)

--- Strobist ---
1 Vivitar 285 HV @ 1/4 at about 12 o'clock bare and fired into a reflective white poster board angled at about 45 degrees. Another Vivitar 285 HV @ 1/16 at about 4 o'clock with DIY grid spot lighting the coins from the side.
