Fruit in Bubbles Take 2 - Grapefruit

 Sunday, March 11, 2012

Ever since I posted my Fruit in Bubbles shots of the lime and cherry I've been wanting to try it again with some different fruits and backgrounds.  I think they'd be fun prints for kitchens and so they'd be fun to have in different colors.  So I picked up a kiwi and grapefruit and some different color scrapbook papers and tried it again.  For some reason I wasn't thrilled with any of the kiwi shots.  I may go through and look at them again but I just couldn't get the same details that I could in the grapefruit.

So here are my favorite grapefruit shots with different color scrapbook pages in the background.  In hindsight, it sorta looks like I just digitally changed the background colors (and I probably should just do that next time to create more options!) but in actuality I just hung different colored pieces of paper behind my glass vase of soda water.  Click HERE to see my set-up for these shots.

Awesome! So fresh and effervescent!

What gorgeous shots! And you're right. Maybe an outdoor background (they blur into bokeh right?) would look more natural or white/gray paper? But I think you nailed it right!

Looks so very colorful and interesting! ...even downright tasty! :-)

Jaymi, these are really wonderful, and I think they would be fantastic in a kitchen! Each is so nicely composed.

Have a wonderful day, and I will still see you in "Blogland."

I'm visiting from Simple as That.

Makes me want to eat a grapefruit. Lovely photography.

I came to your site because I thought it might be about travel and my husband and I travel quite a bit for our work. My latest photo entry is on Fiji!

Beautiful! I think you've perfected this technique!! :)

Love the blue but also the yellow. They would look gorgeous on a wall.

Everything is great about these shots, but the best part is the tutorial (so we can experiment on our own). Thanks!!

These are amazing photos Jaymi! I absolutely love the ones with the blue background. That against the pink of the grapefruit is stunning! The detail of the fruit and the bubbles is exquisite. I HAVE to give this a try soon :o). Thank you for sharing!
