360 Watch Photography Notes
We had shot this men’s watch laying down flat on its side (see 360 watch example using watch hanging kit). This provides a great way to be able to see all details of the watch (including inside of watch band) as there is no watch stand or props being used. We had used the Small LumiPad 360 Lighting Kit (95+ CRI) which proved to be great for shooting very accurate colors and details. We set one sheet of white foamboard (included with LumiPad 360 Lighting Kits) on top of the LumiPad lighting panels to help contain light and eliminate dark reflections (shot in a dark room). Light leakage on the side of the studio helped to create additional contrast on either side of the watch. We had used the Small 360 acrylic Riser to help eliminate any shadows under the product.
We applied some batch image editing in the Shutter Stream 360 Software. These included:
Levels: Minimal adjustments to black, white and midtones to adjust colors
Sharpness: Added a value of 2 to sharpness to enhance image quality
