    Wow, those are really fantastic photos Ming...
  3. Great lighting. Do you use diffusers?

    I also love these watches. Amazing metalwork on such a small scale.

    Love the music player, or whatever we see here.

    Really great photography Ming.

    Way to go
  5. Beezle, yep, I do use a diffuser - homemade softbox with several movable layers of opaque perspex. Unlike Operas 1 and 2, this one is a minature music box, as you correctly pointed out (the other two are carillons.)

    I really like your watch shots Ming. The watches are nice too.

    Have you thought about getting some extension rings and using your new 500 to shoot your watches:biggrin: ?
  15. Heh, thanks guys! :biggrin:

    Okay, you'd better stop before my head explodes :tongue:

    Chris, to get the 500 to 1:1, I'd need half a meter of extension tubes (!)

    Great shots. Very nice website!!!
  19. Nice work Ming!

    Does the watch play the music as an alarm clock, or just music on demand? How many tune does it have (I think there were two listed/etched there - Mozart and Tchaikovsky)? What about the classic Music Box Dancer?

    Certainly a fine piece of craftsmanship, and macro work to match! Must be great to be able to work with gems like these.

  20. The watch plays either tune on demand, or every hour on the hour. One of those babies is worth half a million USD.
