The founders of the Stone and Browne luxury watch brand approached us for product photography for their website. Initially, they had their watches photographed interstate but were not impressed with the results. This is a product photography scenario we encounter often - we also receive stock to be photographed via express freight from right across Australia. We understood how the watches needed to be photographed to convey the quality, luxury fashion and affordable appeal. Stone and Browne is a series of luxury watches featuring premium Sapphire scratch resistant glass, coloured faces and interchangeable coloured leather bands.
Photographing watches for a quality finish is a time consuming and technically challenging affair. This photography job required the team skillset in studio to achieve the best results. Precision is as important as the watches themselves. Studio lighting and photographing combined glass, metal, coloured faces and coloured leather to reduce reflection, capture colour and highlight the watch faces. In the process of photographing the watch faces, the bands and faces were changed meticulously out to remain identical in shape and angle of view to the others.
On a final note the editing on this product photography required superb post production photo editing skills. Photo editing to align the watch faces and knobs. Editing in miniature - removing dust and blemishes on a watch face that is entirely invisible to the naked eye does not get missed by a camera lens. Matching watch bands shape, length and angle to the millimetre. So the detail and patient skill in the editing of this watch photography is another facet of a premium quality result.
