3 ways to light a watch photo

With my roots in street photography, I’ve become accustomed to rolling with the punches. When you’re on the streets trying to capture candid moments, there’s a pretty heavy reliance on serendipity — which is also a huge part of what makes that craft exciting and fulfilling.

As I got into product photography though, I started understanding the value of controlling every aspect of the environment. And of all those aspects, lighting is one of the most impactful ones to have a grasp on.

So for today’s tutorial, I thought I would compare 3 different lighting setups and the impact they each have on the overall mood of a shot. Whether you shoot with natural or artificial light, you’ll find some good insights here that’ll help you be more intentional about the way you light a shot. Enjoy!
