I am currently trying to make a close-up of the dial of a wrist-watch. The result I am trying to achieve should look like this:
My biggest problem is that the glass reflects almost everything. The best shot I got so far is this one:
However, it was more of a "lucky shot". And still, there are shadows inside the dial (on the left side) which I'd also like to avoid.
Most of my shots end up like this:
You can see all the reflections on the glass, even the lens of the camera on the right side.
- Camera: Panasonic DMC-FX60
- Light: Tried both normal daylight coming through the windows and LED.
- The watch is mounted on a stand like this one:
How can I achieve lower / no reflection at all on the glass like in the first picture?
