This is the recipe for a sublime summer afternoon in west London. First, go and buy a delicious pile of seasonal fruits – strawberries, cherries, apricots, nectarines and blackberries among others. Then clip on your macro lens, set up your tripod and photograph them.
Home has a bright, airy loft conversion with plenty of white surfaces – a good impromptu studio space with ample light. The fruit behaved themselves and were happy to pose. The cherries even appreciated a misting of water in the heat to add depth and create bokeh.
And the best outcome of all – plenty of delicious fruit to eat and enjoy after the shoot. Surely it’s not unethical to consume your subjects?…
