Each of us have the ability to take a good photograph, an image that is well lit, not over or under exposed. It is with good composition, nice subject matter and an IDEA that makes for a great photograph.
We can all go out and buy a camera that makes most of the decisions for us, and find we get a good number of images that we are happy with. It is when we have an IDEA for a photograph, that we can then learn how to get a great image. Why? Because we then need to know how to use that camera to give us the results we want. Think about composition, Aperture-D.O.F (depth of field), shutter speed.
I had the idea for this image some weeks ago when I did the original shot of the fruit. My thought process was what is this line of fruit saying? To me it said HEALTH. What background would I need? Black and white or colour? What aperture? Subject to background distance? So you see it is not just a matter of picking up the camera and taking a shot. If you work at your photography, it will improve. If you plan a shot you will be rewarded for the effort.
I think this was worth the effort, it is close to what I had in mind when I had the IDEA so I’m happy with it.
