Week 46, Day 318, March 12, 2010, Pineapple

It was a cloudy dreary day, so I took the opportunity to take the second photo in my food challenge photo.  I find the shapes of a pineapple very interesting.

Lessons Learned:
  • I think that color can sometimes distract from the shapes and textures.  At first I was using black and white for this photo, but I think that sepia worked even better.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/15 sec, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, tripod.

You're definitely right about the sepia. Black & white seems too cold for something as tropical as a pineapple.

I must admit I'm not a big fan of food photography but pineapples look really interesting. I think you did a great job on this.

What an interesting shot! I really like what the sepia does to it - not sure I would have even thought of doing that! Good work!
