That’s turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It has allowed me to experiment, see outside the borders, challenge the authorities and create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp and crystal clear.
I’m inspired by progress and movement. I’m incredibly persistent and never take "less than perfect" for an answer. If I don't have the right tools, I'll build them myself. I like to make stuff happen.
P.S Sorry to everyone who sent me an email with photography related questions and never got my answer. I simply can't answer to everyone, even if I'll work full day answering your questions.

This is what we did during Photigy Pro Corner workshop last week. Lots of fun to review submissions (many great shots are there) and instead of shooting a similar watch that everyone was working for this assignment, I decided to do something different and develop a technique of taking images of watch on a white BG using a universal lighting setup . The lighting setup which will work for ANY watch, allowing to shoot up to 100 pieces a day.
Then we added a super fast post-production technique to prepare a shot you see below in less than 10 minutes in Photoshop.
Considering that after initial setup each shot like this will take about 3 minutes to mount the watch and click, and 5-10 minutes in post, the technique will help on any catalog work with high volume watch/jewelry photo-shoot.
Fo now this workshop is available for Photigy Pro Corner members, and later it will be offered as a separate product for instant download. (Over 4 hours of video)
P.S I've included an "original" image from Seiko website of the same watch. See which one better represents a product :-)
Awesome BTS video and a tutorial form . Cool and pretty useful stuff!
