Found these in the supermarket today. I am not a fan of blueberries so would never normally buy them, but they look so amazing in food photos, and real blue food is such a rarity and I thought they would look nice in my antique silver spoons – these are the GIANT sized ones that are much bigger than a tablespoon with really deep bowls. Ideal for piling berries into 🙂
I thought I would show you what my setup looks like – this is laid out on my lounge floor where I have a ranch slider to my right and in front of me is a wide window that I have pulled the curtains closed – that very thing makes a huge difference to the way the light falls on the image.
So above you can see the big bit of foam core at the top of the frame and a smaller bit to the left. The base is art cardboard (the other side is painted) and the two A4 folded black cards that I use to shape the light. And the tripod balanced over the top – this is tied back as when I put my camera on portrait orientation, its so top heavy, it falls over!
So there you go, I have revealed all my secrets for you now 🙂 Go forth and shoot!
