Lately I’ve been wanting to try different studio background and surface combinations and needed something simple to photograph with my experiment. So with this in mind, I roamed the aisles of the produce department until it hit me – practice pears!
Recently I posted about my (surprisingly) newfound liking for pears in I Didn’t Know I Liked Pears Until Today – Photographing, Baking, and Eating Them!, so lately I’m into all things pear. Two of them beckoned me over, and home they came with me for my photography experiments!
Today’s post by The Daily Artisan showcases these two pears in a variety of background and surface combinations with only minimal props and styling. Mostly it showcases just the pears – a beautiful greenish/yellow one, and an equally pretty green and reddish/pink one (depending on the light for their changing colors).
In addition to testing the various color and texture backdrop combinations, I also got some photographs of my new fruit friend the pear.
Be sure to check out the last photograph – somehow I got four “shadow puppet” pears out of only two real pears … hmmm.
Enjoy the fruit of my labors (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun)!
