An experiment / Explored

Newer Older

During this past winter, when the days were colder or too lazy to venture out, I carried out a lot of experimental shots with stuff I found around the house.. and in that process, I learnt more about exposure, depth of field and so on..
This is one of those experimental shots, the idea was suggested by my wife. Out of the many shots I took, I liked this one the most. Since I don't have any white artificial backgrounds, I used what was naturally available.. lots of snow on the deck!!!! Placed the fruits on a sheet of printer paper, sprinkled some water on it and that's about it.. Lighting: again, whatever was available, cloudy sky and whatever light reflected off the snow..

As I mentioned earlier, this is just some experimentation. However, I would like to learn tricks and techniques on making better images like this. If you have any suggestions, please pass it on either in your comments or by flickr mail..

As always, your constructive comments are always appreciated and more than welcome. Thanks for your visits, comments and faves.
