This pumpkin was actually less than 3 inches wide - bought at Sainsbury's - they called it a "Munchkin pumpkin". The mirror effect was achieved in-camera by placing the pumpkin on a mirror with a sheet of black velvet behind. I have darkened the reflection however for effect. The lighting is natural light from a nearby window.
