My kitchen is starting to look like a fruit market as I continue practicing with still life. Today the strawberries are photographed and tonight they’re dessert. :-D

Ohhh, Holly! Beautiful!!! I LOVE this! It’s perfect! – Pat
Thank you so much Pat!! I’m really glad you like it! :-)
Okay Holly, this one is so good it gave me chilly bumps! Your light and composition are both enviable and beautiful. I especially love the textured background that has traces of the red strawberries in it. This reminds me of a classical painting. Ah, that is what this piece says…..CLASS!….FIRST CLASS!
I think reading your comment gave me chilly bumps Carolyn! Thank you so much!! Aha….you saw the red in the background eh? I read an article on composition the other day that there’s always supposed to be something for the viewer to discover in a piece…something that isn’t obvious. You discovered it!! :-D
Holly, this is just wonderful!!! You treat your camera as an extension of you, everything you photograph look so natural and “meant to be” Simply fantastic.
Oh Pat….what a truly lovely comment. Thank you so much!! :-)
This image is so perfect, Holly. You are very good at still life photography. I am wondering if you use studio lights when you do this work.
What a kind comment David. I’m only just learning still life and there’s a long way to go…. if you ever saw my ‘deleted items’ file you’d know what I mean! LoL I don’t have any studio lights and usually I depend on natural light. However, this week the weather is just February grey so I’ve been using one of the flourescent compact bulbs….at least on this one I did. I’m not trying to cast a light over a wide area so it seems to be sufficient but I really like natural light the best and especially when the light hits on certain angles through the window of the sunroom here. I did some online window shopping for studio lights….yikes!…so I’m thinking I might pick up some construction lights at the hardware store as per Jan Piller’s suggestion and see how they work.
such a stunning series!!
Thank you Julia….it’s an amazing bit of fun to try and work out a still life.
Thank you Rose! :-)
Bet that tasted as good as you make them look too ;) lovely work again Holly.
Thanks HH! I hope you’re having a great time in exotic Thailand!

Thank you Lois! :-)
