Food Photography : Persimmon With Droplets


A low-key image featuring a ripe persimmon (kaki fruit) on metal plate with tiny droplets, on a dark background.

Behind the scenes. 

For this setup I used two white boards (on the left) to bounce the flash light (which was placed on the right) on the back of the fruit and on the metal plate. I also used a black board to darken the background.
