Default Waltham Vanguard

Trying a new set up for my watch photos. It's actually only new to my DSLR I've used this set up with my point n shoot. Gave me pretty good results. I decide the give it a try my 1Ds MK II. This time I'm using my 70-200mm and 1 to 3 Kenko tubes for these shots. Yes, I used all 3 tubes, last shot I could have gotten closer but the case back of the watch was in the way. Maybe next time I'll take the movement out of the case for the shoot

It's a very simple set up, mount camera on tripod and drape drafting mylar over camera


Here you can see the wall mount fixture, 100w bulb, I use for all of my shots. Sometime I'll also use the ceiling fixture, 2 60w bulbs, which I did for these photos.


Using all 3 tubes (12, 20 and 36mm) got me very close!


Here's the results...

Talk about no working distance, that looks close to 50mm of extension tubes.

Nice watch.
