20 Tips for Photographing Watches and Timepieces

Short Description:

Product Description

The art of photographing the wristwatch is known as one of the most challenging aspects of still life photography. Between the relatively small size of the timepiece, reflective sapphire and acrylic crystals, shiny elements on the watch face, matte leather or nylon straps, etc., there are a multitude of surfaces with different properties and reactions to light and the camera.

If you are a lover of the wristwatch or a horologist, you’ve likely salivated over the plethora of amazing watch photography that floods a small corner of Instagram and other social media sites. Grab your “grail watch” and your camera and get ready to talk “flecto” and “lume” while making good time by blending your two passions into one, having fun, and creating your own art!

Note on the images in this article:

All of the photographs in this article were captured with the FUJIFILM X-T3 and the following FUJIFILM lenses: XF 90mm f/2 R LM WR, XF 56mm f/1.2 R, and XF 35mm f/1.4 R. Lenses were accompanied by the FUJIFILM MCEX-11 11mm Extension Tube and MCEX-16 16mm Extension Tube. Where indicated, the iPhone 11S was the camera used.

Note on the watches in this article: Unfortunately, no new watches were photographed for this article. The watches were retouched in post processing (to various degrees), but all of them have signs of years of use and abuse (especially the almost-20-year-old Omega and my father’s 40+ year-old Rolex). If you’d like to gift me a new luxury watch to photograph to add to the article (and my meager collection), please send it to B&H… Attn: Todd Vorenkamp.
