Time To Unwind Podcast #21 - How Do You Take Nice Photos Of Watches?

Tim Vaux




A relaxed chat about taking pictures of watches...

We’ve all got some nice watches (especially Jon: did you happen to know that he has a Rolex Explorer 1, which apparently he quite likes?) But how can you capture good photos of them? Luckily a few of our presenters at the Time to Unwind podcast have a strong background in photography, and they share a few of their most valuable tips on how to perfectly portray your watch in all its glory. Ben, Tim, and Anthony chat about how to take photos – and more importantly, how not to take photos – as well as what’s been floating their respective boats this week.

Sit back and enjoy!

I don't think I can remember a time in my life when watches weren't in my life. I've been writing about watches online for a handful of years now, enjoying every moment of it. I'm passionate about experiencing the world of watches and translating those experiences via articles and images for the wider audience to consume.
