Welcome to episode 20 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! The fun continues, as I’m really enjoying the contributions from all the participants! It’s inspiring to see all this creativity coming together.
This week’s challenge topic is inspired by one of the responses to an earlier challenge that was posted over the past week. Hopefully, this is something that Steve enjoys as well, as the topic of Fruit is filled with healthy vitamins and nutrients!
The challenge that I want you to take on with this topic is to stretch your photography skills to really make the fruit stand out in your composition. When someone looks at your image, there eyes should be drawn to the hero that you’re presenting.
As an example of what I challenge you to do, here’s an image that I captured at Tower Hill Botanic Garden a couple of years ago…
Part of my thinking for this image was to contrast the bright color of the orange and its greens against the almost black and white quality of the statue that stands behind the orange tree. I have resisted the temptation to desaturate the statue, as I think it would lose something of the soft quality that the macro lens provided.
For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
There should be lots of interesting fruits around, just about anywhere in the world, so I’m looking forward to seeing them at their best! Oh yes…don’t forget to have fun with this one!!
This image was captured with a Canon 5D MkII using an EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. The exposure settings were 1/20 second, at f/11 and 400 ISO.
