Jewelry

This was for one of James' assignments. Carolyn, David, and I were given the difficult task to shoot jewelry, which in this case was this lovely ten dollar watch. Our instructions were to make it look classy, but also to accurately portray its features within the image. We worked hard on the reflections and tried to make them as clean looking as possible. Carolyn's red shirt certainly didn't make the shoot any easier. We ended up using a bevy of fill cards and gobos, but only one light. The setup shot is posted below.

Nikon d200, ISO 100, 1/250 @ f/2.8

Nice watch, I like the shallow DoF and the books, I think you made the watch go up in value, however it appears that the hours of 1, 4, 7, and 10 are quite longer than the others.

I like the use of soft light to make this photo seem dated. Nice job!
