This tutorial was originally published on Instagram Stories as part of Sunday Study Club. You can find it in its original format as a highlight on the Watch Studies Instagram profile.

Remember last week when I said skin tones were one of the tougher aspects of watch photography? Turns out, posing hands is right up there too. And the fact that your hands are covered in skin means they deliver the ultimate one-two punch of reasons to stick to table shots instead.

But for the brave and bold who want to add that extra touch of relatability to your watch shots, hand posing is an inevitable craft to master. The good news is that it doesn't have to be that difficult if you follow a few simple rules. The bad news is that hands are weird. Sorry.

Today's tutorial covers 5 little things you should keep in mind before sticking your mitts into the frame. The last one is definitely a no brainer thing that many of us just don't do enough. You know who you are. Enjoy!
