we did 5 shots in a day with the Tudor, with a stylist sourcing all the props, so you have to factor in time for all the discussions about what works with what props, lighting doesn't take too long as i have had lots of practice and know what look I’m after, retouch time is around 1.5-4 hours a shot depending on complexity, how much stacking to do and how clean the watches are, sometimes they look clean to the naked eye but are filthy when you see them blown up.
the Jaeger shot took 15min to shoot as i was in in a rush to let the chaperone/security go at the end of the shoot and as a consequence nothing lined up through knocking the set and i ‘banged it out quickly’ lighting was already in place i just had to move it to back of the set.
i have before shot 16 watches on location (including stacking) in under 3 hours. physically sweating and not how i like to work, loads of retouch due to rushing and having to let little things go.
here is a 100% crop. this is unsharpened with just the ‘version 3.0 standard look’ applied in capture1
