Shot with three speedlights, D2HS, 85PC and extension tubes. Enjoy!
Those are some sweet products shots!! I love them all, they are exceptional!
Splendid images and beautiful timepiece.
YES yes yes ! I knew that the PC lenses were very usefull to control DOF, but this one ALSO looks extremely sharp !
...although i beleive that it needs quite some time to "master" the exact amount of tilt and shift to get such result as on you #1 pic !
Nice piece of "minute-repeater" BTW...
Fantastic! That gives an idea of what the 85PC can do. I have not yet used it for product shots like these but even in standard macro stuff it excells in sharpness.
That is a serious watch Ming! I am a Breitling boy myself, but this one is beautiful as are your pictures of it.
Thanks everybody! I actually did a load more for GP...will post soon!
What is an 85 PC?
The 85/2.8 tilt-shift micro nikkor, of course! :biggrin:
Very nice product shots, Ming! I would love to have that lens for macro work.
Johnny, the 85 PC is a tilt shift macro lens. Its a very sharp and highly rated lens that allows you to adjust it to bring a plane that is not parallel to the camera mount face into focus. Here is a link to Nikon Canada's site for the lens description:
Thanks Dennis. The only catch is that it only goes to 1:2; however, this is easily rectified by extension tubes :biggrin:
Nice lighting, detail, beautiful watch. Really nice work on all of these. The 6th one gives such a feeling of movement.
Thank you. They're for an exhibition by the manufacturer at the end of next year, so it looks like I won't get crucified when I submit my images later :biggrin:
Very well done Ming..
Very inspiring Ming!
Thanks guys! More to come, I photographed about nine watches in three hours...manic session.
