I first saw this shot done by Karli at The Bonnie 5. Click that link to see her tutorial. I've been wanting to try this ever since I got this awesome macro lens! I set up my shot pretty much the same way as Karli except I did use all natural light and I know she had better luck with a flash.
Here's a cell phone snap of my set-up. Basically I filled a square glass vase with sparkling water and hung some fruit by toothpicks on the edge. I set up my reflector on the right (held up by any heavy bottle I could grab!) and had my set-up right next to my window to get as much window light as possible.
I tried it with a cherry and with a slice of lime--these are some of the shots I got.
And do you guys use instagram? Its currently my favorite iPhone app. Just for fun I edited two of my fruit shots on instagram! Who says you need expensive editing software?
I can't wait to try this with more fruit and different backgrounds!
