This product shot is the result of hours of meticulous post production. I focus stacked about 35 frames and also manually masking areas to get the entire watch in focus. It required a lot of cleanup, when shooting macro, you will see every spec of dust imaginable.

Dude. Nice one. I like that it's not the typical 10:10 like we're used to seeing.

Thanks for noticing that small detail Tam! I wanted to switch it up a bit and I thought it fit the composition better.

This is perfect 100%. 35 frames to get final image, props to all your work and patience.

Thanks Vicente! I love the challenge in creating product photography. Every product has different characteristics, size, shape, texture, color, & form. And each product presents it's own unique challenges. This image was no exception.

Brilliant lighting. Looks lovely. You'd have a bit of an easier time of it though if you used a tilt shift lens. ;)

Thanks man! I'm not sure if the tilt shift lens would have let me get in as tight. I used a 100mm Macro lens. If anything I probably could have benefited from using a focusing rail. I moved the focus ring around manually, it can get very tedious very quickly

I'd like to read from those who didn't give this 5 stars. What is there not to like and what is there to improve?
I think it's a wonderful shot with perfect detail and a very soothing athmosphere to it! Great job!!
