When Life Gives Me Lemons... I Take Pictures of Them

Today, during my regularly scheduled blog hopping,  I came across several photographs of fruits and vegetables.  Coincidentally, the Digital Photography School Weekly Challenge is food photography.  So, I took the idea and ran with it.  I spent my afternoon photographing lemons.  Unfortunately, when I decided to start working on the photos, all of the lovely natural sunlight was gone.  I decided to setup my shoot indoors and was forced to use an artificial light source.  I used my 100 mm macro lens because I really wanted to capture the detail in the lemon.  I managed to get several shots that I really liked.

Here are my favorite three.





I saved the 4th picture for my photo of the day!

I love your choice for the POD. The black background makes the color just pop out!

I like your pic of the day too. The lemon's great, but I also like the contrasting negative space. I also like the second photo, with the juice coming off the lemon. Nice job!

Aasiya, thank you so much for all your comments on my blog. On my latest picture I used a Lightoom Preset called Pseudo HRD downloaded from one of the many free preset sites. I bumped the exposure and saturation too.
