Still life – Fruit – 10

It’s been a bit of a still life week, driven mainly by upcoming competitions at our club Harlow Seniors Photographic Group  Here are a couple of images I have been working on.

My most recent, and best, investment has been a 24″ soft box that I can now hang, with a small strobe flash head, from a boom  over these setups. This is all clamped to a lighting stand and was quite unstable until I used an exercise weight on the other end of the boom to balance the set up. ( No, I didn’t have the weight – I purchased it from a local sports shop!! )

The soft box has made the lighting much more satisfactory and easier to control.

Both taken on the Olympus OMD EM-1 Mk II with a 12-100mm f4 Pro Lens tethered to an iMac desktop running Olympus’s Capture software.
