Prompt: Set up a simple group of objects, such as a bowl of fruit or a vase of flowers. Put your camera on a tripod. Your light (sunlight, window light, or a light from an incandescent bulb) should come from about 45 degrees to one side. Turn off all other lights. Do not use flash.
Take the first picture.
Do not change anything. Do not move the camera, the subject, or the main source of light. Do not change the aperture, shutter speed, or focal length. Place a reflector (in my case, a large piece of white cardboard) on the side opposite the light source. Move the reflector closer and farther from the subjects until you are satisfied with the way it lightens the shadows.

Who knew food could be so beautiful? I fell in love with the contrasting color of the red/orange fruit with the blue bowl. I've decided that food photography is fun (and tasty) so I will be attempting more in the future.
An excuse to make new recipes from my pinterest board AND practice my food photography?? Yep, that sounds like the best (tasting) idea ever.
