Fruit Photography: Yogyakarta.
This is the several times I shoot product. Many of them is a commercial product package in a bottle. And today, I want to shoot fruit to complete my concept of my product photography.
The product photography it self is a vitamin water in a small bottle called You C 1000. The flavour is lemon and orange, so I have to shoot two kinds of fruit to communicate the vitamin water product’s flavour.
I get import orange and lemon in a Yogyakarta supermarket, they are fresh and has a good shape to photograph. I don’t get any flaw in this fruit that gets from modern store. Perfectly good. The color, shape, texture, and the aroma, but i dont’t shoot aroma unfortunately. They cost about $2 spent for this fruit.
I shoot them in a black surrounding background. Maked with 2 axises. The straight I use black velvet fabric. This kind of fabric is well to absorbs the light. Some scientis said that black velvet fabric can absorb almost 90% light transmited from flash. And for the horisontal axis I use black glass, specifically acrilic black glass. This acrillic kan refelect the shadow, I like this effect for the mood will enhance elleganity.
From this photoshoot, fruit photography is easy enough to handle. I think the most difficult is to handle glass material. Because their character is very shiny. So, it don’t takes so long for get best result for this fruit photography.
Some editing I use, to get clean nice background. Clean background is essential for commercial photography. We want to perform the best from our photo to communicate their message.
It took 2 days to finished this concept. And that is so fun session. Controling the light and the final output.
