The wrist shot is a staple of watch photography. On Instagram alone, there are nearly 2.6m posts tagged with #wristshot. And it makes sense why: it's the most common, most relatable, most familiar perspective for any watch owner. It's the defacto first person POV of a watch. What time is it? That's a wrist shot.

But still, not all wrist shots are created equal. Is there a bad way to take a wrist shot? Probably. Is there a better way to take a wrist shot? Yes. Hundred times yes.

And so, today's quick tutorial takes a look at 3 simple ingredients to help you do just that: take a better wrist shot. Spoiler alert: I make up a new term (#parrotshooting) and tell you what to wear. Enjoy!
