Monday 11/2/20: Shoot your Fruits & Veggies!

Fruit & Veggie Still Life

In this lesson you are going to set a still life of fruit or vegetables and take fabulous photographs of them.

  1. Before you start do a Google image search of still life fruit photography and look at some amazing photographs. You can also check out the work of Haniyeh Nikoo for more inspiration.

  2. Then open up this presentation and READ EVERY SLIDE! You will learn how to make dramatic still life photos of fruits & veggies. This project is really easy, and can be really beautiful if you take it seriously and edit it well. I am excited to see what you come up with!

  3. Set up you scene. Remember to have a simple backdrop. Use a shirt, sheet, towel or set up a paper background. (The presentation gives more details!) Think of yourself as a fruit and veggie photographer and you are promoting this food item for a magazine.

  4. I suggest taking at least 10 shots, with different angles, lighting and compositions. Avoid front lighting, instead try side and back lighting. (The presentation gives more details!)

  5. Crop and edit using Snapseed or your phone by making the shot black & white or make the color pop out. (The presentation gives more details!) Crop the shot to make the composition perfect.

  6. Go back to Teams and turn in your best 3 edited shots. Due end of Tuesday Nov. 3rd.
