This Vostok Komandirskie arrived from Russia in 3.5 weeks. That's the quickest trip from Russia of anything l've ordered from there. lt has a true 24 hour movement that features automatic winding with handwind option. The date is wrong but l didn't set the date for 2 reasons. No Russian watch that l know of has the quick date set feature. And l can't see the date without reading glasses anyway. Canon EOS M50 with 15-45 lens, and Nikon 6t for closer focusing.

Nice series, Bill.  

 

Especially that last image.  No bright speculars.  Did you use speed-lights for lighting?  If so, I'd love to know more about your set-up.  :)

Yes l used off camera flash aimed at the ceiling. Now that l'm shooting RAW l can pull back the highlights and eliminate hot spots. For the luminious shot l adjusted the flash power about 2-3 stops under and adjusted the shutter speed to the lume with lights in the room turned off. And shined an LED flashlight on the lume for about 20 seconds before the shot to charge it up.
