Just Fruit

November 22, 2011 § 9 Comments

To take a break from portraits, I moved on to fruit bowls. I have to say that this one was the easiest, the most fun, and the one I am most pleased with.

I threw a paint drop cloth over my ironing board, taped a dark green flannel fabric to the wall behind it, and set my ott-light off to the side for low, dramatic lighting.

There’s not much more to say about this one.  Most of the fruit has been eaten already. Nom.

    Wonderful “mise en scène”, pretty photos. I prefer the fruits in place of “portraits” : they can be eaten !

    I like all your pics, my hubby went to Brooks Institute of Photgraphy when they still used film and chem processing in darkroom and he never uses this talent so I like when people do..Have you thought of photographing quilts ???

    Love this fruit portrait! You got the lighting spot on and the setting really works…A+ from me!

  • Liz says:

    And I wonder how many quilters thought… “the fabric is not pressed.”

    I do like this – good composition, but all your other photos have been good. Hope your teacher likes them too!


  • Liz says:

    Oh… I forgot to mention that I have been ironing fabric and blocks this evening, so that’s why I noticed it….I am in the pressing mode right now!

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving quilting with your sister in law !!

    It is very, very beautiful! You are on a Dutch track – for it looks just like it could be a 16th century Dutch painting. How would a still life with folded quilts come through in such a setting, I wonder:)

  • Pratima says:

    It looks just like a classic still life painting! Your lighting is perfect and casts beautiful shadows and creates a lovely deep backdrop. Thank you for sharing 🙂

Go ahead, say something...
