    A few photos as I try to learn..

    Had a lazy day at home and decided to spend some time trying to learn to take better watch photos. I do not even rate as an amateur photographer. Just using my point and shoot Sony camera and trying a few tips I read on the internet on my N.O.A. 16.75 M003 watch. Fairly pleased with the results. A few of the shots are below. Opinions and/or tips on improving welcome.

    P&S is fine for watch pics, as it look like you know. Already learned the importance of an uncluttered background and how to play with reflections ... I would say you are far from amateur ;) . The shot above could be in a magazine.

    Thanks for the compliment, but trust me, I am indeed an amateur. When I was browsing the internet for tips it was like reading another language with all the jargon related to camera and lenses and such (F stop what??). But I did find a couple of sites which taught me about how to get better lighting and white balance, which is what I used to take these. Here's another I thought turned out well:

    Very nice. I like the ones with the angle that shows off the reflective light in the crystal.
