Day 286 – fresh pears

Posted in Uncategorized by Dave on October 13, 2010

There’s not much better than fresh pears.

How it was shot:

1/250s | f8 | ISO 100 | 88mm | flash set at 1/2 power in softbox

Originally, I tried to emulate window light. But I didn’t like the surroundings so chose to black it out by increasing the shutter speed to max. There is a flash in a softbox to camera right and about 1 foot away from the pears.  Because the light source is so close to the pears, it creates a relatively quick dramatic falloff for shadows.
