BLACK PLUMS

I wanted to do something with the teal colored boards I made for a previous shoot. So keeping it on the cool end I grabbed some black plums from the store put 'em in a blue bowl and a couple of shutter clicks later...here ya go.

Took a little more time than that but it was a very easy shoot. Placed the boards on the floor - camera on a tripod looking almost straight down. Only two light sources, 1. an AB800 Alien Bee on the left shooting thru' a satin umbrella aimed down about 45 degrees. The light is at roughly nine o'clock.
2. And on the right - a silver reflector opening up the shadow side.
Slight desaturation in post.

50mm lens on D7000, ISO 100 at 1/15th ss @ f8 in manual mode.
