Hello all

I'm just fooling with the camera and POCH trying to achieve "Product" style shots to show off my Omega.

These are the closest I've come so far, hopefully with time I'll get closer to the brochure quality of photograph.

Anyhow I hope you enjoy them

Happy weekend all

Davey

:-!Generally nice shots, I like them.

Light setting is OK. For "Product shots" they are a bit dull, should have more impact. Also you need to clean either the watch or the camera's sensor.
I played a bit with your shots, using cloning and histogram tools, before/after results below.

BTW: Nice cam from the C brand you have, congrats - even though I prefer the N brand.

Just FYI, there's a thread about light use in the photo forum:

And AFAIR on the Breitling board have been some howto tips by Ron (O2AFAC).

Your lighting and camera work seems pretty solid...you just have to work on your exposure and Photoshop skillz!



A little work in Levels to fix the underexposure...some Color Correction to get rid of that muddy yellow cast...pumped up both the RGB and Blue Curves to increase contrast...messed with the red, cyan and blue channels in Selective Color to brighten those colors...gave it 100% Unsharp Masking and finally, increased the Saturation on the red and cyan channels about 15%.

Please send my check to..................

Nice shots. Yup all you have to do is bring in the high's in your "Levels" tool PS. Maybe slide over the gray's to the left for a brighter image and you're good.
