Watch Photography

Timepieces speak elegance, class and style. If watch images are anything to go by, they are stunning enough to arouse an interest, boost customers confidence in a brand and convert to a sale. The above is only true for watch photographs with a professional touch. The kind that accurately showcases visually satisfying features that meet client’s expectations.

At royal london product photography, many clients have entrusted us with their merchandise, watches being one of them. Each time we deliver nothing short of excellent results. See these examples of beautiful watch shots as part of our successful product photography work from our Amazon clients****.

How do we get prospective customers glued to your online store ogling at the spectacular images of timepieces one swipe after another? By following a meticulous product preparation, shooting and post production process. Read on for a few key highlights to try and nail an amazing watch photography film.

Give your pieces a thorough buff prior to shooting to free them from dust, prints and smudge while leaving them looking clean and polished. A soft cloth preferably lint free may be used. Be wary of using any cleansing agent that may damage the watch or straps.

You can opt for a flat lay or closed strap presentation. While the latter may be more flattering, chain linked straps may prove difficult and require the help of clips for stability. Whatever the arrangement, ensure the dial is visible and the hands are symmetrical. Achieve this by setting it at 10 hours 10 minutes and the seconds hand at 12 mark.

Backdrops may be clean, simple and sleek or with accessories. For e-commerce shots, keep it plain white. A black acrylic background is also popular as the reflection brings a certain charm in the image. Other captivating stages include a satin-silk fabric or velvet gift box. Lifestyle photographs utilise relevant props to give viewers a contextual appeal. For example, a flat laid fashion bracelet watch paired with some jewellery or a sports watch shot with running gear. Using a models wrist is another cool alternative.

Well lit images are achievable by both natural and artificial light. The latter gives more control.Too much brightness however results to reflections, shadows and glare. Light must be diffused. Or better yet, make use of a lightbox.

Have multiple pics of the watch with main focus on interesting parts. Timepiece enthusiasts get ticked not only by the dial but also close up view of the back case and engravings on it, crowns, closure type and straps.

Use software such as photoshop or other prefered photo editing tools to do away with blemishes, give your pictures some final touches or even add special elements and effects to the background.

Most importantly, invest in professional grade camera and lenses to capture sharp images showcasing even the smallest of details in high definition. Things like the tachymeter scale, dial indices, fonts, date window, logo and embelishments should appear with clarity. Find our recommended equipment for the perfect watch shot here****.
