Some recent macros taken with a macro lens. The Hamilton was shot with strobes, the Casio with natural light.

Amazing what off-camera lighting can do. Really nice capture of the dial texture on that Hamilton.

Just received a new Parnis open heart model so of course I photographed it.

Camera nerd info: two Alien Bee AB800 strobes 1 octabox camera left, one strip bank camera right at about 1/8th or so, sometimes gridded sometimes not. Shot on a Nikon D700 w/ 105mm f/2.8 Micro Nikkor at between f/11 and f/16, Shutter Speed 1/250th always, iso 200

Camera setup (different watch but same setup). This is what I do when we are waiting on repairs for flood damage (hence the chaos)

I love the "aesthetic" of these photos. Would you mind telling how you set up the lighting, it looks unbelievably professional!
Thanks, those were shot with a DSLR with an external flash light. The flash head was tilted at an angle and the flash light bounced off ceiling for the soft lighting look. Composition played an important part as well.

Here is bts photo that I posted on Instagram yesterday (@chriscentro)
The polishing cloth was just to steady the watch, lol.
