...we have not used an SLR since the film days. My wife was the photographer here; I had little interest until I started taking pictures of watches.

So, we both gotta learn or re-learn some of this stuff.

We got the Nikon D7000






It came bundled with this lens:

It's going to take a while to figure this stuff. But it should be fun.

What am I going to have add to the bag to get some good watch photos?

Thank you! Guys! How would you set up for watch photography >>

Dave M65December 26, 2013 01:26PM

Start with the tripod, down the road add a macro lens.

Dre40December 27, 2013 02:13AM

I would add this about center vs matrix metering with watch pics...
