Photo365 – Day 250 – pineapple slice

I sliced my pineapple up as thin as I could and placed the slither on an old Jessops lightbox to backlight it. I then used auto metering and over exposed by half a stop to get the bright effect.

Taken with Pentax K-5 and 16-45mm lens.

Photo365 – Day 249 – pineapple

I have a new theme to introduce to my photo365 blog – fruit and veg. I will from time to time use my daily post for a different way of shooting fruit and veg. This one is lit just with my Gorillatorch

I placed the Pentax K-5 on a tripod set the shutter to 30 seconds at f/4 and tripped it. I then painted the pineapple with light placing emphasis on the sides to give a rim light type effect, trying not to spill onto the background (black velvet)

I quite like the lush feel it’s given this tropical fruit.
