“Still Life with Nectarines” is a still life photograph that demonstrates the importance of lighting to emphasize the texture and shape of objects being photographed. As with “Garlic and Red Onion” which I posted recently, the primary light source is to the left. Reflective white cards were placed to the right to bounce the strobe’s light back on to the nectarines. The bounced light opens up the shadows and gives volume and shape to the fruit. The primary light also nicely accentuates the jagged texture along the broken edge of the slate.
