How to Photograph Minerals - a mindat.org resource page


Mineral photography is a skill requiring a good understanding of your camera settings and the lighting and positioning of your mineral specimen. This section gives easy access to some of our resources for mineral photography including important articles, message threads, equipment reviews and of course our messageboard where you can ask your own questions about how to make the perfect mineral photo.

For more general photography-related articles and discussion why not check out Jolyon's blog on Canon photography - click here.
