Simple still life with citrus.
1/28/10: Found this in use at a cocktail hour web page.
Did you photoshop the edges of the photo ?
I did add a vignette effect, yes. Felt like it added to this particular capture.
Nice shot, the short depth of field works well. What did you use for lighting?
The lighting is actually my least favorite aspect of this shot.
I took the photo in my dining room, where I have an overhead incandescent chandelier on a dimmer switch. The camera was mounted on a tripod, and this is a two second exposure.
The shadow from the glass is from two candles just to the left of the lens of the camera. I didn’t notice these shadows when I was shooting, so this shot is a great learning experience. Check the shadows… always check the shadows!
but I like the shadows… life, even still lifes, always have unexpected shadows. profound
Fair enough… I guess my point is that in an image in which I tried to plan and control everything, I forgot that shadows exist. D’oh! 🙂
very fresh look… I like it…
Very cool. The red background gives it a classy look. Reminds me of some sort of liquor advertisement. Conveniently enough I have a clementine sitting right next to me.
