Back To Basics – Damasko DC66 Chronograph

I’ve recently participated in a debate on one of the watch forums in which we’ve been discussing true representation of subject versus artistic representation. It’s been an interesting thread and it encouraged me to temporarily go back to basics and not rely so much upon the powers of Photoshop processing.

My goal was not to produce an interesting or fun image but instead to produce an accurate representation of the watch in front of me, whilst still producing something that was pleasing to the eye. I’ve been amazed at just how taxing it can be when you remove artistic license and replace that with stringent parameters. However, here’s the result which I intend to be the first of a series.
