Lume Shot

How do you guys get your lume shots??

·

Ultraviolet light, some faint backlighting, and a good macro lens. If trying to execute from a phone it is a little tricky, but you want to focus on the logo, or 12 o'clock pip (if lumed). Bonus points if you do so on a tile, or reflective surface, but experiment, there really is no wrong way short of directly in the sun.

Yeah I’ve been eyeing the laowa macro for my Fujifilm xpro3. Just rocking my portrait lenses and extension tubes at the moment!

The tubes certainly help. Like I said play around, but you're off to a good start.

Good suggestion on the tile. I’ve used some acrylic with black cloth underneath to get reflections before. I need to get another sheet from lowes

Black light and careful focus. I can set my phone camera to macro. Not ideal, but postable.

Rob, I LOVE that watch...and believe me if it was just a tad smaller i'd have bought it, but it kinda overwhelmed my wrist. I think it's their coolest dial. The gradient alone!

I don't use a macro, but I have a lot of mega - pixels so that helps ( Nikon Z6 with 24-75 lens) I try to keep the light low and reflect as much away as possible, but Lightroom does help obviously

So I have considered that Laowa, and have seen some reviews on that new 90mm one. I think I'd like to try it, but I'm on the fence with that or the Nikon Z macro. Your shot looks awesome btw

I use a little pink flashlight I keep on top of the fridge to charge it then I go in the garage.

You are right on that. This is the heaviest watch in my collection and it is big. I can pull it off on my 7.25” wrist, but think about my titanium watches at least once each time I reach for it! It’s still good-looking enough to get wear.

Great shot! I current just post 90% wrist shots, but you might inspire me to try some better stuff with the collection. I use Lumix/Leica equipment mostly for candid portraits.

Thanks a bunch man! I seem to be rather terrible at wrist shots unfortunately...gotta work on that

I wore my Submariner all day outside in St George, Utah a while back.  At night, it was on fire.
