Rock and mineral photography can be complicated, and how you decide to approach it depends on the purpose of the photograph. I’m learning how complicating is can be while I was shooting at TheHoneypot . I also have learn. For the purpose of illustrating research or other texts, it is important to select the specimens which best highlight important mineralogical features, and do your best to represent those through your images – however, when attempting represent an individual specimen for sale, catalog, or digital display, the focus of your images will be to show that specimen as accurately and realistically as possible.
what I have learn so far is Many factors affect photo quality, and accuracy of representation. Resolution, orientation, focus, lighting, and magnification can all drastically affect the resulting aesthetics. Ultimately, your goal will define the means – but here are some things I learn so while doing so myself . ( I have lot’s to learn still lol ) .
In rock and mineral photography, features such as clarity, intense color, form, crystallization, and previous damage can be difficult to capture – but these aesthetic features are what truly define a specimen. Representing them accurately is both a matter of skill and time, and requires the ability to take oneself outside of the process, and objectively compare the resulting image with reality.
In some cases, it will be impossible to accurately represent particular features through rock and mineral photography. When this occurs, simply do your best to highlight relevant points, and then provide a detailed explanation in your caption or description.
Before snapping shots, you’ll want to decide your specimen’s orientation. Place it on the surface you intend to use as backdrop, and turn it 360 degrees – paying attention to its relative orientation, play of shadows, and the placement of features.
When deciding which face or magnification will offer the most attractive images, simply place yourself at the angle and distance from which you would prefer to view your specimen, and close one eye – this will help you envision the resulting two-dimensional image, and adjust your approach, if necessary.

Created by Moon Men Creations ! I have never seen any kind of kind of hats like them ! I’m a hatter myself so I was highly Impressed with these bad boys of high fashion trend setter’s of the hat industry ! As I said before here is the a little something of the history of hats.
One of the ways that man tried to adapt to nature is by using hats as a mean of protection. After that he started using hats and headgear for other purposes as well.
First hat in human history was probably a big leaf or a piece of leather. But one of the first images of a person with a hat is a painting in Thebes tomb. There is painted a man with a simple conical straw hat.
At the same time appeared “pileus” which is a simple skull cap, “petasos” – first hat with a brim known to men and a Phrygian cap, Conical cap with folded top that was given to slaves when they were given freedom. Because of that, it was called “Liberty hat” during French Revolution. First big step in history of hats was discovery of felt. There are different stories about how and who discovered it but it was discovered in the different parts of the world and in different time. Some of the most famous hats are Stetson, Sombrero, Bowler, Fedora and Hard Hat.
Hat started as just one more protection from elements. It stayed that way but at the same time it developed into something more. As if it almost gained a character. There is not one person on this planet can say Moon Men Creations hat don’t have character lol . These hats are of the chain ! Crazy part I never heard of them until I walked into The Honey Pot !
