F R U I T I O N
is the still-life series I first shot when I bought my Nikon D3000 (which I included to sound rather impressive and hope is working). I love Eastern light, early morning Eastern light. There is nothing like its’ purity.
The focus of this series is primarily the vibrancy of color found in everyday objects (I think I have a fetish for red cabbage, yikes!) It is a reinterpretation of the shape and color of fruits and vegetables and a commentary on environment.
I worked with color lighting to enhance the color that is already there. I used the primary colored light bulbs on mobile clip lamps combining colors to create more intensity. I found flashlights with colored bulbs that allowed me to use different environments (i.e. snow) as the backdrop.
I soaked the fruits and vegetables in water prior to shooting them. This brought the boldness of color to F R U I T I O N (insert auspicious sound.)
