    Default 10 Minute Chiaroscuro Challenge today! Try it!!!

    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!

    okay, I did it. need to shower before I spend time working on the images. but I'm not sure I really got it. ugh. there's too much clutter in my house, so the background was bugging me the whole time.

    My husband thinks I'm a LUNATIC! He saw me working on the images (only the first was PP'd beyond ACR, and that was only because the WB didn't look right and I didn't go back to ACR) and wanted to know what I was doing with pictures of apples.

    You can't see the beam of light ... should we see the beam of light? I couldn't see it no matter what I did. Now we have gray clouds and it looks like rain, so I don't think I can attempt it again today.

    Totally blew a big spot on the apple where the light hit it. So should I have exposed to not blow that spot? If I had, then it would have been super dark (as I did play with my SS to see how to reduce that spot)

    In the order I took the pictures:

    1.apple 3

    2. apple 2


    3. apple 1


    4. apple 4

    those are awesome Gwen!!! Great job! I love that you got the reflection. Who else is game? I'm going to try and get mine after Avari's music class. We have some seriously bad flat light today, so I'm waiting for rays to peek through
