Food Photography : Half An Apple With Ice (Black & White)

One week photo challenge : Photographing apples

Day 7

The final picture of the series (at least for now) is a black & white picture. A moody composition with half an apple with broken ice cubes, on a dark background (top view).

Lighting. 

I used one diffused light coming from the right and some black boards to darken the area around the apple. I also did some editing in Lightroom, adding a little of cyan to the black and white tones in the picture.

Food Photography : Apples On Blue Background

One week photo challenge : Photographing apples

Day 6

An apple comes from the local market, the other two come from a tree…Can you guess?

Note. Quite difficult to get the right balance with the colours here, because the predominant colour is blue, however I decided to use a light blue background because I quite liked the contrast with the red apples.

Lighting.

For this setup I used one diffused light from the right and a large white board on the left, to make the background lighter on one side. I also used a black board on the opposite side to partially darken the background. Then I edited in LM.

Day 5

Lighting.

A very simple photograph with a very simple setup, this time….Some subjects don’t need anything else. Here I used one light from the right and a small white card to bounce the light onto the edge of the fruit (on the left).

Day 4

Continuing my daily project and going a little more abstract here!

Lighting. 

In this setup I used a reflected light (reflected on a large white board) coming from the right. I used a black board to partially darken the background. I also used a small white board to reflect some light onto the apple and onto the edge of the ice on the left.

Food Photography : Apple With Wire

Day 3

Today I used a soft metal wire to add interesting highlights to the dark composition. I played a little with the idea of creating an abstract shape.

Lighting.

I used a reflected flash light on top of the subject, but slightly on the right side. I also used a few black boards to darken the area around the subject.

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.

One week photo challenge: photographing apples

Day 1 

I’ve decided to dedicate this week to apples! It’s a challenge!

I’ll be taking pictures of apples for a week and posting them as I go along. Starting form today, this is my first photograph! I hope you enjoy it! 🙂

Lighting.

For this setup I used one flash light with a small soft box (from the right) and three black boards to darken the areas around the subject.  I also used a white card on the left, to bounce the light onto the darkest area of the subject.
