This is what I’ve got for the Studio Photography Insights #8: my version of creative watch shot:
As usually, mini-video tutorial from the shot:
Watch and liquid splash video tutorial
If you have hard time looking at me on the video, here is a shortcut for you:-)
The Lighting setup:
Two stripboxes behind for the watch top edges, one in front (left) for the face, one on top for the bottom (I got reflection from foil under the tank to highlight the bottom of the watch).
Oh and that holder I’ve used is this: Delta 1 Grip It Dual Arm, Triple Clamp. Pretty cool thing to hold little stuff.
My biggest mistake was to shot watch slightly upside down, and i have re-shot it. But the most sexiest splash was among that first set of images.
