Photo365 - 249 - pineapple

06/09/2011 - 22:01

I have a new theme to introduce to my photo365 blog - fruit and veg. I will from time to time use my daily post for a different way of shooting fruit and veg.

This one is lit just with my Gorillatorch.

I placed the Pentax K-5 on a tripod set the shutter to 30 seconds at f/4 and tripped it.

I then painted the pineapple with light placing emphasis on the sides to give a rim light type effect, trying not to spill onto the background (black velvet)

I quite like the lush feel it's given this tropical fruit.
