Today I’d like to share four photos of four different fruits.

What are your favorite summertime fruits? If I had to choose…I would say berries are my favorite summer fruits. Unfortunately the season is too short.

I know it isn’t pear season for us in the Northern Hemisphere. But for some reason during this time we have a lot of pears show up alongside the other seasonal fruits. Most likely the pears are imported.

Even though berries are my favorite I never turn down apricots or merunky as they are called in Czech.

I love summer and the  abundance of juicy fruits. Happy Sunday everyone! I’ll have a recipe for you tomorrow.

 

*Photography notes*
A great way of practicing your photography is by snapping simple shots of single ingredients. It’s also a good idea to try out different colors and background settings. By doing so you’ll start developing a better eye for how certain foods photograph best. As you can see with the apricot photos I’ve done just that. Honestly I couldn’t decide what background I liked best. Thought the lighter isn’t my typical style I quite liked it. In the pear shot I changed it into a black and white photo. Additionally I added some photo grain to achieve a rougher retro look.
All photos where shot on my balcony using indirect sunlight. Both apricot shots the light was from behind, no reflector used. The berries photo light was from the front, no reflector used. In the pear photo light came from the left side, also no reflector used.
