    Default Product photography

    Hi to all,

    I 'm recently into this product photography taking pictures of watches. But i can't get the effect that i wanted. I' m currently using D200 with 17-55 lens. I wnted to take close up and blew out images but i can't because of the min focus distance. Is it because of the wrong lens used. Anyone can share some guidance here?

    Thanks.

    Perhap it would be better to post a pic or two to show so we know the results you had.

    You need a macro lens to take close-up or macro shots. Else need to use an extension tube or close-up filter to get closer shots but magnification not as big compare to shots taken by a macro lens.
