Day 106 – Sliced Blood Orange

Posted in concepts, Things by Dave on April 18, 2010

Things are not always as they appear. I saw a similar shot with a banana and tried to recreate it.

40D | 1/125s | f11 | ISO 100 | 60mm

How it was shot-

The orange is sitting on white poster board with another white poster board behind it. There is a large softbox above and to the right. Very simple lighting actually. The tricky part is to get the orange to look like it’s flying away.

I sliced the orange ahead of time and used toothpicks to hold it together. Then I just placed the knife and took the shot. A quick trip to Photoshop removed the toothpicks. I also dodged some of the shadows in the corners. The original untouched photo is below:
