“Raspberries and Blackberries – a still life” is a new addition to my Still Life portfolio. The dark and moody feel of the composition was a bit of a challenge photographically. Keeping the dark blackberries from getting lost in the dark lighting and background of the set was the goal.
Interestingly, raspberries are thought to have originated in Asia Minor, namely Turkey. The people of Troy gathered the wild fruits around the time of Christ. The Romans discovered the sumptuous fruit and soon took them throughout Europe.
