Just put my latest watch & jewellery reel on Vimeo.

It's all commissioned commercial work,so I've kept it short,so as not to bore everybody.
Please take a look if you get the chance.
Any comments,good or bad would be appreciated.

Hi Tom,
Are the Chromatic Aberations from the Master Macro or just the Leitz?
Thanks Stephen

Hi Stephen,

They're from the master Macro,although the Leitz also exhibits the same thing.
The Master Macro also flares very easily,I liked that,and lit deliberately to emphasise it,but of course it's not always desirable.
It's quite difficult to get the Leitz to flare.
The Master Macro and the 100mm Leitz also breathe to a certain extent,but the 135mm Leitz has virtually no breathing or CA.
Hope you're well.

Best
Tom.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for that, I was suprised as the magnification only goes to 1:1, it's something that has been bothering me, however I have been going way closer. If the Master Macro does it I guess I will just accept it as unavoidable.

Generally the best lighting on Macro is with Dedolights, when 10K's & huge screens come out it always gets rather flat & milky!

Thank you Christopher.
As Stephen says,Dedo's are excellent for this type of work.
Although I sometimes use a large area light,especially when I'm shooting on Red,just so the shadows don't block in too much.

Tom
