Day 96: Pulsar wristwatch

I think I’d be quite happy to photograph watches for a living. Each one’s got its own character, and they can be quite a challenge. I’ve photographed this particular one before. The last time, I used a dedicated macro lens, and today I used the Tamron 18-270mm PZD with a +3 dioptre. It’s clearly up to the job.

Another shot after the jump…

A profile shot, concentrating on the form of the wristband, and the contours of the glass.

    • Thank you. I aimed a flag directly over it from in front of the watch at the right, and reflected it back from the rear left with a pad of paper held just a couple of inches above.
