Project: Strawberry on Black
"This Strawberry Was NOT Harmed in Making of this Shot!"
I had another go at it, this time on black. Makes it harder to deal with reflections than using a "white" background.
I was racking my brain where the blue reflections were coming from until I was starring at my towel behind me - ha, ha. Cloned some of them out, but not all...
Also, I was a bit too slow in the left hand-toss-rigt hand-press shutter department and a tad too late, the strawberry just hit "glass bottom" when the flash fired. I am still quite happy with the result, though...
This shot was taken at ISO-500 with a shutter speed of 1/250s and an aperture of f/5.6. I tried a shutter speed of 1/500s too, but somehow screwed up the manual focus on those shots.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
