Attempt at photography

Happy New Year, everyone.

During the Holidays, I took a picture of my watches.  One of them is of the Overseas, and thought I should share it with you.

Attempt at photography

I hope you like it.

know how you suspended the watch? I cannot see any holder, did you photo shop it out? John
No, I didn't suspend the watch......

I just put the watch on a black stand and used a piece of black cloth as the background.  The light fell on to the dial from one direction, through a window, illuminating the dial while rendering the rest of the watch dark.  The stand and the background thus blended together and disappeared. I even had to use a piece of paper to reflect light onto the bracelet, or it would have disappeared as well.

Thanks for these.  One of your photos in this thread hints at how great this watch would be in DLC or PVD. Park
Stunning Picture and watch...

how did u manage to suspend the watch?

Great shot, Born. Hello from an old uncle.

Nice shot Born. Although I like the 40mm size of the original Overseas, I really love the bracelet on the latest edition.  I think it is a BIG, BIG improvement on the quirky bracelet of the old one (like on mine).

Here's a wrist shot - although it hasn't been seeing much actual wrist time... Cheers Kazumi

Veri nice pic andd nice watch :) ....
