Watch photography

If you notice of late, I have been posting photographs that I have taken of my watch collection. I am trying to improve on my watch photography. I am not a professional but an amateur still learning the ropes. I have been asked what gear I am using. Basically I use to use my Point and Shoot camera but of late I have resurrected my DSLR. 

The gear:


Nikon D300


Nikon AF Micro Nikkor 60 mm 1:2.8D (main lens)
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18 - 200 mm 1:3.5 - 5.6 G ED

I am going to change the last lens to either one of the following:

Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18 - 70 mm 1:3.5 - 4.5 G ED as it has a shorter focus distance or
Nikon AF Nikkor 35 - 70 mm 1:3.3 - 4.5 as this lens has a 'macro' focus range

Light box

Locally sourced very cheap light box.
