Strawberries are at their peak right now and my present photography subject today. These fruits have a lot of vitamins and minerals as well as it’s a good source of fiber too. I want to emphasize a very simple setting to show some of my pictures taken during my ‘’Fruit Photography Hour.
Indoor shooting is much easier for me because all the things needed is quite beside me, ready to use. I have encountered difficulty to catch the angles just to make fruits looks more natural, appealing and appetizing as possible especially attempting close-ups. Lightning is very important because it will reveal the texture of the fruits My aim is to make strawberries looks fresh even on pictures.
To be a food blogger is combining 3 passions together all at the same time: cooking, writing and photography. I have learned a lot of things doing all these things as well. It’s fun and I’m happy to see all my efforts have paid off. Let’s look at some photos of strawberries.
Intrinsic beauty of strawberries
My macro shots
The white background makes the image more colorful and attractive however, just like any other fruits captured previously with white background, same method applied here. Sometimes the danger is great because small particles came from fruits is noticeable, this is always my problem using macro.
What I’m pointing here is you don’t need all those bright lights if it will give unwanted shadows, that’s why, I’m controlling the intensity of light. For macro shots, you need close equipment at distance. Macro lenses fitted to the camera, 55 mm, 100 mm to 200 mm is great, shows more good working condition specifically designed to perform at close range.
Strawberries on a white plate
The perfect white background for strawberries. My mood will rise and seems active, let me tell you how it was done, I used a white cardboard for the frame to reduce the intensity of light. The white background will make these fruits even brighter and sharp because it was done under full sun. If you know how to control the light by covering both sides using white cardboard to shelter from the wind and extra unwanted shadow reducing the intensity of the bright light or reflectors. The white background exposing the natural freshness of the fruit although, it is sharp.
Having a white background will emphasized more on the subject itself.

Other fruits goes well with strawberries
Indoor photography is just as fun not to expose myself from the heat of the sun. It seems I’m protecting something, oh well, my skin tone color is already light brown, no need to add more into it. It feels good to see my effort after the hard day’s work. After photographing these fruits, you’ll find them inside my tummy!
well folks, it’s getting late, I need to go…
