"In the still water of the fountains one saw the splash of human faces, ignited by these gold and scarlet stars as they rose hissing into heaven like thirsty swans." from Justine by Lawrence Durrell.

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.
