Blue strap

Jan 08, 2019,04:10 AM

I changed the strap from the original black to the GO blue alligator strap to try and compliment the blue hands - I wish I could take photos of the quality that Jocke achieves. The blue of the strap is very subtle, in fact it looks mostly like mat black in most light.

Jocke, can you recommend how to light a photo to capture the blue tint of the hands?

Far more versatile.

Changing the angle of the light brings up the blue

It might take 10-20 tries before you are satisfied Subtle Brilliant Blue background helps too, but each watch is different. Keep working at it - there's no substitute for practice. Cheers, Cazalea ...  

As Cazalea said, plays with angles, play with light

The lighting in the picture of the A. Lange is spot on, it captures the hands so perfectly. I’ll keep trying with different light angles. Thanks Jocke.
