Fruits of the Vine
This weeks photo challenge was “fruits of the vine” and as I’ve been a lazy sod recently when it comes to entering I thought I should give it a go. The subject naturally makes you think of grapes or wine, and *everyone* is going to take a photo of a glass of wine – so I thought I’d go for a glass of another vine-fruit. Tomato Ketchup.
Simple lighting for this one, cardboard-and-straws grid snoot on a Vivitar 283 positioned top left, slightly behind the glass aiming to backlight the tomato. That’s it, one lightsource. I’d probably have used a second (big soft strip light ideally) to wrap a bit more light around the front of the glass but the battery is dead in my second radio trigger so I could only fire one strobe.
I really should get some triggers which take AA batteries (or at least work out a tidy casemod for the ones I’ve got)
Oh, and the super clean reflection? Sorry, I cheated. It’s an identical glass upside down underneath.
