Food Photography : Apple With Mirror Tiles

DSC_0344

One week photo challenge: photographing apples

Day 2

Here I added some layers and framed the subject using reflections and different materials. I also played a little bit with the colour contrast.

Lighting.

It took me a few attempts to get the lighting right in this shot. First I tried with direct light, but the shiny surface of the apple was reflecting too much….Therefore I had to use some backlight and a reflected light from the left, in order to avoid any problems.  A black board on the left stopped the backlight from falling directly onto the subject.
