Mechanical and Organic (Fruit & Vegetable) Photography

7 Jan

Before the light began to fade yesterday afternoon I set about taking some photographs that combined fruit and vegetables with mechanical parts, an idea that I discussed in a post earlier this week. The outcome was unfortunately not as good as I hoped it would be. I have 10-15 reasonable images but I feel a lot of improvement can be made; as a result I will be carrying out attempt 2 soon! I experimented with mushrooms, potatoes, radish, plum tomatoes and cucumber. I particularly liked using the cucumber and radish as both vegetables have a vibrant skin and translucent inner flesh, perfect for layering. Below are some of the images I have taken so far, but I certainly hope to improve upon these next week. I think I need to be more inventive in terms of how I prepare the fruit or vegetable and I also need to think more carefully about the background of the photograph.
