How to shoot an URWERK...

... and make the Luminova sing.


1.- Wait for the .05 to stop. (Yes, it was very hard to refrain from winding it!)
2.- Make sure both, the URWERK and your camera are fixed in a steady position. (I suggest a tripod if you have one.)
3.- Set the watch to manual focus and exposure.
4.- Use a high f-stop value to increase focus and depth of field. (Use f.16 or higher)
5.- Set an exposure time between 10 to 30 seconds. (Don't go above if you use digital, there will be too much static.)
6.- Use a remote trigger. (If you don't have one use the timer.)
7.- Use your flash to manually flash the URWERK and make the Luminova glow.
8.- Pull the trigger!
9.- Enjoy.
10.- Post in your favorite Forum.

This, of course, would work on any other watch as well. So, what are you waiting for?!?
