Fruit Series–Challenge

There are times I just get an idea and want to see how it works out.  Sometimes it works out well and sometimes not.  I wanted to use the Fiesta plates along with different fruits to create some simple images of color and fruit.  I chose oranges, lemons, limes, kiwi, and a pomegranate.  I had a lot of fun–and worked pretty hard at the same time. See the results.

Pomegranate Series

Orange Series

Lemon Series

Lime Series

Fruit Punch

I can see that I need a consistent white back ground–that is something to work on and be challenged to achieve.  I used a 50mm lens part of the time and a 105mm macro lens some of the time.  Great fun to play!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

About ~ ~ joanne.thomas.photographer~~

I am retired, starting a new career. I love shooting portraits. People are so fun and interesting--I try to bring out there personalities and capture them in images. Children are especially interesting little people, who love to tell you all they know and are so uninhibited. I enjoy shooting weddings to capture all the details and emotions of the day. Between photo sessions I keep shooting --to learn, to experiment--to create art. The industry is ever evolving and I want to give my clients the most exciting and lasting images, full of their love of life expressing their personality.

    I ended up here after seeing your photo on the DPS photo challenge. I saw your comment about white balance. Here’s a trick if you’re shooting RAW. Don’t use auto white balance. Set it to something (cloudy, tungsten, whatever) and take all your pictures – provided they are all in the same light – with that setting. The white balance might look awful with a severe yellow or blue tone to it…but when you change/adjust the white balance in one photo, you can apply the same adjustments to all your photos and the whites will all look exactly the same. I love the idea. And congrats on your recognition in the DPS challenge.
