A-Z Fruit and Veg Photo Project: F is for Fig
This particular day was wet and gloomy and I was feeling a little intimidated by the light, (not having much experience with this particular light). I decided to continue on, as they figs were going to find themselves in a tart later that day, and find a way to portray the sweet taste and colour of the subject.
Only having three figs, and with one of them being broken, I felt limited in what I could do in terms of styling. I did however, like the look of them slightly cut to resemble a blooming flower. So I sat them in an old cast iron cupcake pan!
As I was just about to take this shot, I watched the feature fig slowly fall apart before my eyes to reveal a star shape. It worked, and this quickly turned into my favourite shot. Sometimes when things don’t turn out – it’s for the best!
What is this all about?
