Photography: Mini Forelle Pears

They looked so beautiful that I just had to bring them home to photograph! Inspired by this image taken by Tarlette.

I have not been inspired to cook anything lately. Still trying to recover from my post-holiday and troubled leg depression lol...But thought I'll just take a few photos to feel alive!

Lighting source: Natural afternoon light from left of photo through the window. Mirror used as reflector to lighten up the front parts of the pears.

Lighting effects: I wanted the lighting effects to be dramatic so I played with the shadows and texture, with natural light shining over the top of the pears, especially near the peduncle.

I said it on your flickr stream but you made my day being inspired by my pear picture :)
I am having such a blast with photography and learning and trying new things everyday. Challenging myself with colors and angles. You are a huge inspiration.

Your photos are great too...I'm amazed with the colours and composition, and the fact that you do not need a top-end fancy camera to produce great images :)
