Day 205: Just a Bite
Another apple, I know. Just what you wanted, right? I really like illuminating semi-transparent things from beneath, which is what’s going on here. This is an apple slice placed on a piece of white poster board. The white poster board is propped up about 3 inches from another surface, which is covered with black poster board. I snooted my flash, lined it up with the apple slice, and shot it into the 3 inch gap between the two poster boards. The position and modification of the flash was giving me a grayish edge on the sides of the frame, which I left because I liked the effect.
