I've had a fascination with watches since childhood, my father was a watchmaker, and he would let me sit at his workbench so I could "work" on the watches too. Absolutely love this photo!!

Behind The Lens

Location
At the clockmaker's workshop in the Black Forest Region of Germany
Time
It was at an afternoon.
Lighting
For lightning I used 2 external flashes, one on the right and one on the left hand side of me facing the clockmaker.
Equipment
This picture was taken with my old Sony A350 and the Tamron 90mm Macro Lense
Inspiration
I always loved this workshop, so I asked the clockmaker if there would be a chance to document his work for an afternoon, and this is one picture from the series.
Editing
Yes, the digital negavties have all been developed in Camera RAW with light and color correction afterwards
In my camera bag
Sony A7RII Sony 70-200mm f/2.8 Sony 16-35 f/4 Sony 50mm f/1.4 Light carbon tripod
Feedback
Focus on the detail, but don't leave people out of the pictures, as they bring it to life!
