The Next Question for Peter -- Head-Shots Only or Full Body?
In Response To: Why I did it! ()

Thanks for this explanation, Peter. Yes, it takes a considerable efforts, but you are getting some fantastic results!!

The next question -- For each of the watches, are you taking only the "head-shot" or are you capturing various angles (sides of the case / pushers / etc.)? I would guess that you are only capturing the head-shots, but it would be amazing if you are getting more.

Fantastic work, either way!!



: Thanks Jeff for promoting my InstaGram project.

: As some of you know I work with room acoustics and we are in the
: process of redecorating our showroom. My marketing responsible
: thought it would look cool with some of my watches on a 1,0 m x
: 2,8 m acoustic picture – and I didn’t disagree!

: So I spend a weekend taking pictures of all my Heuers, then she
: could decide which to use on the picture. Will post the final
: result.

: I have 34 (+ some that are stranded with watchmakers!) Heuers and
: till now I have posted 14 of them, so another 20 days to go.

: All photos are taken with the same setup and processed afterwards.
: I still have a lot to learn, especially when it comes to white
: balance.

: Here is a really bad picture of the setup. Two screens with diffuse
: light – two reflectors – Nikon D600 with 105 mm macro –
: and a lot of patience.

: Peter
