BE WARY OF RE­FLEC­TIONS

To pre­vent an­noy­ing re­flec­tions, says Kris­tian Haa­gen, “use nat­u­ral light for the best re­sults and stay away from fil­ters”. He adds: “You want to make your pic­ture as per­fect as pos­si­ble with­out hav­ing to spend time edit­ing it. Nat­u­ral re­sults are best.”

USE PROPS

You don’t want your feed to look like a watch cat­a­logue, so grab any­thing to add vis­ual in­ter­est. Even a tex­tured sur­face will do, as @ rarebirds.de of­ten does. Or com­bine your in­ter­ests: @bex­sonn’s ac­count is known for fea­tur­ing his two pas­sions of watches and whisky.

CLEAN YOUR WATCH

A lux­ury watch’s best fea­tures are of­ten found in tiny de­tails, so if you’re go­ing to do a close-up, make sure to clean the watch first. Use a lint-free cloth for the case, and cot­ton swabs or paint­brushes with rub­bing al­co­hol for the harder-to-reach nooks. Resid­ual dust is in­evitable but can be dig­i­tally cor­rected.
