    Gallet movement macro

    I've been playing with different ways to do macro photography. This is a simple trick of placing a 10x loupe in front of my Lumix LX3. This particular movement is an Excelsior Park EP40 "doaner", that I'm scavenging parts out of to go towards my MultiChron Pilot project.

    The loupe trick works on camera phones too! Good lighting is the key to 'good' photos with this technique.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Good lighting is the key to good photos, period. High magnification tends to mean narrow field of focus, which makes it hard to show multiple layers. Having lots of diffused light lets you use a smaller aperture, which helps widen it back up.

    Yup, I intend on doing some more experimenting with my Canon 50D and 105mm macro lens. This quick shot I took on my back porch because it was sunny today! Oh, wait: I live in Phoenix - it's always sunny...

    When I want to take really good shots, I used to use a lightbox I constructed out of a cardboard monitor box I found that had an all white interior. Cut a big hole in three sides (turned it into a "frame" really) and covered it with white fabric. Couple of desklamps with pure-white CFL's shining through the fabric, and voila.
