These are absolutely outstanding. I'd love to know more about the backgrounds you're using as well....like what you used for both red and black on that Rento T-Rex. Also, what lighting are you using? Softbox?

Soft box is too big. Even my med/small one. I have been using what I have laying around the studio ... but will be making some watch specific boxes soon. The BG is some ... stuff ... I found at Tap Plastics. Its a plastic sheet material used for, something. :D

As do I. The VAST majority of these are NOT mine. I only have 6, total and none I have bought are over $230.00.

I like the looks of some of those Invictas and Renatos. I've tried a few on before but, I found out that they look too big on my wrist. The largest I would ever wear would be around 45-49mm.

Agreed. The largest I have is 49mm, and that is right at my limit. Any larger and the crown stabs me in the top of my hand.

I guarantee, they have all been worn. :D I'm just REALLY good at photoshop.

I must admit, I did shoot two of them before putting them on. It only made sense :D

Please explain how a soft box can be too big? You didn't like the size of the reflections? Thanks.

I only have a limited number of lights with limited brightness. The larger the box is, the further the lights are from the item. The further they are, the dimmer they are and the faster ISO you have to use. That = noise.

When shooting watches at close range, you have a VERY shallow depth of field. If you want more than 2-3mm of it in focus, so you need the smallest aperture you can get to spread it out a bit. Small apertures means you need more light.

See where this is going. :D

Shoot in Manual Mode and adjust the shutter time, not the ISO.

I ONLY shoot in manual when ding these shots. At that focal length and (extreme closeup with 1-3 extension tubes), I get slight camera shake even with two stage shutter release. Faster shutter is just better. Now, if I had the new Canon "L" macro with IS, it would be a different story.

Amazing stuff... Could you explain further why you're putting your softboxes farther away from the subjects. Is it because of reflections?

And are you getting paid for any of this stuff? Or just port work? ;)
