Watch photography challenge


We’re giving you a real challenge this week — watch photography! Notoriously tricky subjects to photograph, shooting watches often requires precision as well as patience. The good news, though, is that they don’t always require as much equipment as you might initially think. Even if you only have one light, you can create stunning watch photography if you understand light and how to control it.

In addition to your lighting, you’ll have to think about what background you use, your choice of props (if any), composition, camera settings, and lens choice. With product photography like this, the aim is always to ensure the product is the hero. For more tips and ideas, take a look at some of the watch photography classes below or take a look at our other product photography classes.
