Hey there, I am a pro photographer but product shots are not usually my thing, so when my new watch (Pan90 homage) arrived I decided to "have a go" at some small product lighting.
I've posted a set up shot below, it's pretty straight forward. 2 speedlites, 4 bounce cards and a large black card that I'm shooting through to eliminate reflections on the glass. in fact the black card for this shot was one of the most crucial parts, OK so you can photoshop some reflections but if it's across a dial or logo you're just making things hard for yourself, and when i'm working i try very hard to keep the post production down to a minimum.
Canon 5D mkII
