I’m still getting to grips with my DSLR camera and on the few occasions when I actually get around to experimenting, I am reminded of how far I down the learning curve I still am.
I’m not much further with getting the focus right and composition isn’t yet a strong point, although I am trying a few new angles now and again.
Last summer when apricots happened for a change to taste as good as they looked and were also a reasonable price (apricot facts that in my experience can not just be taken for granted here in Europe as they can in New Zealand) I sent Himself on a shopping mission and he came back with about five kilo’s of apricots, most of which ended up as pie filling which was duly stashed in my freezer.
These apricots were very photogenic, and intrigued as I am about light and Dutch Old Masters, I thought at the time that I’d attempt an Old Master style composition of my own.
Work in progress… next time I will use the tripod and change the background by rigging up something more interesting, but it was at last an attempt. Still Life with Apricots…
