Fruit! It's been a lot on my mind lately. I love everything about juicy fruit. Sweet, succulent, colorful and so healthy. Besides indulging into the tempting fruit basket, I find they make perfect motives for the camera.
I knew straight away what I wanted to submit - a picture I had taken a few months back and also features the month of December 2009 in my RAW Calendar 2009. The calendar is still available to buy at my Zazzle gallery. It's been doing really well and thanks to all those who contacted me telling me how much they are enjoying the calendar. It honors me!
This picture "Juicy Red" was inspired by a shot I saw on Flickr a little over a year ago. It has always been on my mind since then. It had that instant WOW! effect on me. So, last year when I decided to take a few shots for the calendar, I decided to include watermelon. Instantly I was reminded of the shot. Unfortunately I could not find it anywhere again - but I decided to create my own version.
So, what do you think? Does it have a WOW! effect on you?
- Camera: Nikon D70s
- Lens: Nikkor 18-70mm
- Tripod: Bilora 1211
- Focal Length: 44 mm
- Exposure Time: 1/125s
- Aperture: f/4.5
- Lighting: Natural light from right and one Lowel Ego light from the left back corner. A bounce was used directly in front to light up any dark patches.
WOW! or not - I had a great time shooting with the juicy fruit. I enjoyed learning a bit about lighting mix - natural and lights. There's still so much to learn and so much to improve on. CLICK will be one of the events that challenges me to do just that.
