The nice thing about playing with food is that you get to eat it afterward and these lovely figs will make there way into some salads for lunch.
My study of side lighting again is with a South facing window and using a white board on the right to bring in more light from the left onto the figs. I was a far piece from the window inside my home so I needed the extra light. I wanted a moody feel to the figs and the top image was achieved by the lovely preset of Kim's kkmoody with a few added touches in LR by me. I have said this before love her presets. The other images were plays of my own in LR.
