Time to get this thread back to the surface once more. Got myself a new watch a few days ago, but i couldnt find any good images how the watch really looked instead of showing the features(like the product images
) so i had to roll my own so to speak. Still didnt get the reflective parts as i wanted and it was lots of other tiny faults here and there, but then, it was a quick shot.
The focus just seems off inside the face, or just a little blurry or something.
He, that was one of the tiny faults that was here and there. DOF got quite short, so yes, as the face is slightly slanted, the DOF doesnt cover all of it as it should if it wasnt a quick snapshot. Compare the upper part vs. the lower part of the face.
Some of the other faults include having my dinner(can of meatsoup) being reflexted in the upper bracelet part of the watch, and not having lit the watch with tiny spots and getting a better angle that would bring out the more reflective parts beside the face. Also, the time should have been set to actually reflect the shape of the face and arms. Also, all highlights actually got a blue fringing that i had to lessen before i shrunk it, not much to get away from that as long as you use digital. Overloaded cells are overloaded cells.
But yeah, thats if you are picky, which i am for my product shots that goes into the magazine, but not for a quick, "look-heres-my-new-thingy" shots.
