OK, let's do this!!!!
It's super easy! Grab a piece of fruit (apple, pear, whatever), walk around your house and yard. Find somewhere that there is a beautiful piece of light peeking through. Put your piece of fruit in that light beam, compose the image (make sure that you can see the highlight of the light on your fruit) and snap a few shots. Try taking them from all angles, and try and have lots of negative space to show the scene that the fruit is in. Make sure to always expose your image for your highlights, so the shadows are very dramatic. See what you can come up with. Imagine how it would look if you placed a model in that same scene.
It should only take you 10 minutes, you can do it!!! I learned so much about light by trying this technique out. Sometimes, just slowing down and looking at the scene can really help!
I'd love it if everyone tried this out today - give it a shot!
