This is what I’ve got for the Studio Photography Insights #8: my version of creative watch shot:
If you have a 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. The pretty cool thing to hold little stuff.
My biggest mistake was to shot watch slightly upside down, and I had to re-shot it. But the sexiest splash was among the first set of images.
