"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.

I woke up this morning with an urge to shoot something on my crafts table. After rummaging around the vegetable and fruit drawers I arranged them on the table thusly.

The only light is an Arri 300w fresnel fitted with a double scrim from the left. I placed two black pieces of foamcore together and with the light behind them I slowly pulled them apart until I got about a 2 inch sliver of light. Covered most of the slit with full CTO. (heavy orange filter)
left a little open on the bottom and slipped a piece of 250 diffusion over that. (that's the whitish blue light hitting the lime on the left.)

Shot with the D7000 on a tripod, tripped shutter with a cable release. Used a Nikkor 35mm/50mm DX lens at ISO 100, f3.5 at 1/20th ss.
