Well, it had to happen…

I’ve been wondering what strap to wear on my Autavia GMT, and nearly tried the Di Modell a few months ago. Now, I wish I had because I really like it.

I’m sure there’ll be one or two dissenting purists’ voices calling for a Corfam, but I’m a big fan of the Rallye strap and won’t be changing it again any time soon.

An eye for an eye

I was more than happy with my Heuer GMT, but when the opportunity arose to pick up another that was almost NOS I decided to go ahead with what is effectively a straight swap (not in terms of price though, sadly). This one won’t be going anywhere, as I doubt it’s even possible to find an example of this relatively uncommon watch in better condition. I do fancy both the 11063 and a 2446C versions to go with it, but I’m reducing numbers. In fact…

Multiple off-camera flash, and a Heuer

I’ve been playing elsewhere with different lighting set-ups and thought I’d share one or two photos after taking some shots using multiple off-camera flash units. It gives some depth to the photos that’s otherwise hard to achieve, and I’m starting to get the hang of it.

Aside from that, it’s a chance to showcase a lovely watch 🙂

Experimenting with flash

I’ve been playing with a new flash, coupled with a wireless transmitter to enable me to take it off-camera. I’ve only just started down this route and have plenty to learn, but the first results are encouraging.
