Celebrate the taste of summer all year long.
|Expect the unexpected in your photo shoot! Who knew Lucy was a fan of peaches?|
Each summer, Mother Nature rewards those of us who have survived a long snowy winter with a host of amazing local fruits; raspberries, blackberries, and the lesser known gooseberry. And while we focus on their taste, they are quite incredible in their beauty as oh-so-temporary art objects. So before you slice, dice, puree, or just pop them in your mouth, why don't you capture that beauty to remember during the colder months.
Tips for Fruit Photography
1. Get close: Use the macro setting and get in close to capture the most detail. Take lots of photos at different angles.
2. Fresh or prepared: Raw fruit is gorgeous, but your favorite recipe may be a work of art too.
3. Lighting: Morning and evening light work well. Indirect light from a window is also good. Bright light will wash out the detail. And remember: no flash!
4. Get it wet: Freshly washed fruits has lots of water beads to catch the light. Mouthwatering!
