Still looking for the perfect shot...

Still on the learning curve. Now I know how to remove reflection on the crystal and polished case (in theory anyway). But still looking for the perfect shot. More of my experiments.

Oh, the way to remove reflections is to put something black in-front of the crystal away from the view of the lens. As for reflections on the case, you can try moving the light source (if mobile), again something dark in front of the case so that the dark object is being reflected by the polished case or as simple as not being in the room and triggering the shot by remote.

The pictures...

I moved the back light source away leaving only the bottom right corner lit. The GMN51 (pink watch) looks like it is floating...

Difficult to remove the reflection as I was shooting straight and level (almost). Need to make some black screens to put around the camera. 


  1. A request? Try shooting your MKII - does the AR crystals give the same reflection as the Seikos? Call me bias, but I'd like to see some pictures of the MKII!

  2. Hi Aaron,

    Will do. Stay tuned....

    Best regards,
