Carley over at Ellipsis issued Mondays Challenge...Still Life and Fruit..oh my..said I. I have never photographed fruit in my life, well maybe some fruit in a tree..but that doesn't count. I might be out of luck on this one. ..but if some Food Photographers can do it..maybe I can too. So in the spirit of the challenge.. I thought and thought..finally ..IT came to me!
IT'S THE RASPBERRIES!! Minnesota grown and hand picked. In my freezer! Put them on a plate and see what happens. Well I began with a white plate...not even a fancy plate..it might even be a tad papery.. They looked OK , but not terrific.
Then things went from bad to worse, frozen berries look great frosty..but in various stages of unthawing, they leave a whole lot to be desired. Finally after about sixty pictures with various plates and different light. Flash on.... flash off. Let me tell you there was lots of berry eating in between! Finally I got one I liked..what do you think?
I have a new appreciation for Food Photographers now!:)
