Oranges and Texture

January 19th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This afternoon I was watching an awesome show on the history of photography, and it inspired me to take a couple of shots myself.  Coincidentally, I noticed that the lighting in the kitchen window was really nice.  Here are the best two shots:

Little Cuties Oranges

"Little Cuties" Oranges

I really like the simplicity of the image and the nice consistent arrangement of the fruit.  I also really love the vibrant colors.  (This was directly as shot other than the crop.)

This was a bit of a surprise.  I noticed a piece of paper sticking out of a cookbook on the table.  Water on the paper had made the ink bleed through in interesting patterns.  I was quite surprised how well the photo came out.  It really shows off the subtle texture of the paper.  A little bump up in saturation makes the colors of the ink pop out.  I also had to push the contrast to make the texture more evident.
