Since I had my gear out, I wanted to try to capture the beautiful iridescent Gallet red-dial watch. Attachment 511228
I came across this watch recently, never seen a dial like this from Gallet before. It has the Valjoux 7733 movement.
I am still working on lighting - having a hard time getting rid of those blow-outs at 3 and 9. It's difficult getting the exposure correct on what is essentially a mirror surface! Maybe my best bet for shiny watch cases is a stacked exposure, reassembled in Photoshop.
I've seen some wonderful light-box work on this forum, any suggestions?
