Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Single Light Source (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70s
Lens: Sigma 28-105mm f/2.8-4.0 Aspherical for Nikon
Location: Peterborough, ON
Date: Nov 13, 2005
Galleries: Still Life, Studio
Date Uploaded: Nov 13, 2005

Concept: My idea was to take a slice of orange and backlight it to show the texture. I soon realized it needed a little help, so I added the glass of juice and the half orange. I put the half orange on an angle so that the light would go accross it to help show more texture.

Lighting was from one studio flash which was above and behind the subject.

Post processing: crop, curves adjustment layer, hue/saturation adjustment layer, USM.

The lighting is good. The compostion doesn't do anything for me, I think it's too spread out.

Placing of the glass and oranges seem a little unimaginative. Lighting is really neat thou. Overall nice image.

Cropped too tight. A little more room on the top would be more balanced.
