Thanks. Yes, the fifty is the perfect studio lens. It can get really close and the IQ is a joy.

Usually I take 1-3 shots of every setup that I like. Many product shots are composites for lighting reasons. It's hard to get the light everywhere at the same time.

In the last two shots I wanted to have the watch fade to black quickly. With a usual white or grey reflector, it didn't look right. So I printed a gradient (black to white) on paper to get a nice fading reflection from bright in front to dark in the back.

On the side-by-side comparison you can see the difference between a solid white and gradient reflector (the lower side of the watch).
That is hugely informative! The pictures help loads. Thanks very much for sharing.

Thanks. No, it's not post processed, just the sun through the trees.

Using the rear lens cap and some chewing gum to keep the props in place is the hot tip of the day. /jk
