This was a still life photo, which I named “Apples” The project was to capture the beauty of a daily item and fall apples are something that taste and look wonderful. I captured both beauty and mystery in the photo which appears as more than just apples.

  1. The light use was really well done here and I like how you set up the apples in way I wouldn’t have thought to. I enjoy the high contrast and think that makes you look twice to check if they are really apples.

  2. I love how the apples almost look as if they were painted. The lack of background information/context was a nice choice. It really places primary focus on how the light effects the daily item you were examining.

  3. Your lighting is superb, and resulted in you nailing the objective of capturing a daily item in a wonderful way. The shadows are very soft, which complement the apple’s round shape and show a technical approach to a surface that naturally wants to appear hard, reflective, and can create excessive sheen. Good job. The diagonal composition is good, since the line is broken up with the stems of the apple themselves capturing my interest along the way and causing me to closer examine each apple.

  4. My series right now focuses on natural lighting of everyday objects, and I was really drawn to this photo when I was scrolling down the exchange zone. I think you did a really amazing job here, as you did with your hundred dollar bill photo, with the lighting. The lighting in this photograph is really amazing, and the the black background really helps the red coloring in the apples pop out. Overall you did a really great job capturing the beauty of everyday apples, and I’ve never seen apples captured in a photograph this way before. Great job!!

  5. Wow. I love this photo. It certainly accomplishes what you set out to do. It looks morel like a painting than a photograph with the way the colors pop and the way the shadows fall. I also really enjoy your arrangement–it’s simple and odd and I don’t know why but I love it!

  6. The wonderful contrast & use of light here really brings these objects to life and suggests a story line behind these fruit.
    The coloring of the apples make them look dangerously alluring. Like there is a catch to such perfection.
    I definitely get a fair-tale feel from this image, very real-life snow white.

  7. I like the tons of the image. The red and black looks great to being together. The apples look smooth. The lighting looks also great.

  8. The stark contrast between the background and the apples aids with the mystery factor you mentioned. The contrast of the red and the way the light hits the apples, but doesn’t quite make them shine is beautiful as well.

  9. The lighting in this photo is absolutely stunning, the visual gradient of color is so appealing and interesting that I couldn’t take my eye off of it.

  10. A really striking image. The apple is full of mythological and symbolic meaning. This image immediately brings to mind the original sin story, when Eve takes the apple. They look other-worldy good.

  11. Beautifully done. This lighting is done well on this image. Composition is great, the line of apples is so interesting to look at, along with your color choice of the apples.
