Great work!

I love Gio cologne. That's one of my more popular colognes to wear :lol: .

But I think you've nailed the lighting and composition. Just keep this up!

I'm assuming you were using your SB-flashes to light these images, right?

Were you using a tent?

Well I certainly think you can manage this.

Only thing I will say is try to look into some different perspectives and crops.

It might be nice to get close on a certain part of a the product, (i.e. the face of the watch).

Keep up what you're doing, but also try new angles, compositions, and set-ups.

i'm no expert by any means, but i'd say that if you could find a way to do this in your spare time for money, you'd definitely get away with it... these are very clean and crisp.

Excelent work Japokskee!!! Those photos can EASILY (and I mean it) could be in any top magazine with the vibrant color, nice lightning and tack sharpness... Now, if I were you I'll try something more, as example, a black background is one choise, using also a "hand model" wearing the watch or writing with the pen could be your next test... Get creative!!!

As Thomas said, you might get a couple of extra bucks doing some product photography, so far you're doing it awesome!

Cheers.

Vintahah might have overcooked the praise a little with the "top magazine", compliment, but these are all solid product photos. I hope you don't mind that I referred another thread here to view your images as examples of what to aim for (the thread in question can be found here).

Over there you'll also find an example of my rudimentary product photography. I don't often do it, but I can easily take my lighting techniques from portraiture and put them into use. Even with your DIY white background you can easily achieve a back background that Vintahah suggests with the right strobe techniques. You'll need to pop your SB800 into Auto-FP mode to get the fast shutter sync. Give it a go when you have time.
