Study of an Apple.  Nikon D7000
4th September 2012

In further continuing the theme of studies of objects, I decided to consider an apple.  

It seemed like a good idea to keep the pips in each segment in order to provide some focal points, but they were frustrating and kept dropping out :(

I also had to apply a few cocktail sticks in order to get the sections to stay put too.   I used one light off to the right and up, with a white shoot-through brolly in front to soften any shadows.

Then I noticed that the apple was rapidly turning brown while I fiddled with the set up...  

I've eaten the apple now so I have no more opportunities to rearrange the composition.   Although I do not like apples, it tasted good.
