    More photo fun with my G-Shock

    I enjoy taking photos of my watches. I have really had fun with my G-Shock GW3500BB-1ADR as it is just so good looking. I thought I would share. Cheers Bill P.

    Pretty cool, Bill! Love your 3500BB with the bracelet...definitely a unique piece. I finally found a bracelet to stick on my GW-3000BB from Casio sales and service! It's going to be a great week...I also have a GW-9010MB-1JF incoming (the matte black version of the Mudman you just got). I'll post some pics in a few days!

    Great news, Bosox! You will enjoy the bracelet and also the matte black mudman. I really wanted the black with red as I'm a Univ of GA Bulldog alum and our colors are red and black. I now have a GA Bulldog watch!

    G-Shocks, my camera is a Panasonic Lumix LX5. It is tripod mounted and I use the timer so I don't have camera shake. The camera is set on the macro setting.

    I have 2 high line DSLR cameras with macro lenses, but I get good results with my little camera and stick with it for playing around with shots like these.

    The crazy shots are the result of a simple Photo Shop trick. I'm using PhotoShop Elements 7 for these jpeg images.
    1) crop the image as square as you can get it
    2) go to Filter, polar coordinates and choose the bottom one
    3) go to Image and select rotate 180 degrees
    4) go to Filter again and polar coordinates, but this time select the top choice
    5) resize the image for a computer screen.
    6) I then add a bit of color saturation to make the image pop

    Give it a try and have some fun. Cheers, Bill P.

    I enjoy your pics Bill - I was curious though, are you making the digital display a deep red in photoshop? At best, my 3500 digital display is a copper color and it would be a stretch to say it was that deep red color I see in your photos. Just curious, Rod

    Rod, thanks for the kind words on my photos. My GW3500B-1A has the copper color you describe for the digital display; however, the GW3500BB-1ADR has the red digital display. The lighting really makes the red "pop" in the photo. On my wrist in natural light it is red, but not as vivid. Cheers, Bill P.
