Rubies

  These little jewels of fruit are growing on a small bush in my garden at the moment. They’re Chilean Guava (Myrtus Ugni),  marketed  here in New Zealand as New Zealand Cranberry. They’re delicious little berries tasting like a mix of strawberry, pineapple and apple, so a real fruit salad flavour. They grow well here […]


An apple a day

  Continuing the fruity theme here today…. Usually I don’t set out with an idea in mind for a photo, I tend to improvise along the way, adding and subtracting components till I find something that works. I started with a plain apple, added plates and knives before settling on a plain partially peeled apple […]


Apples

  I love taking photos of fruit and it doesn’t worry me if they’re a bit past their prime, I think all the wrinkles and spots add to the interest. These scruffy little specimens came from a tree growing beside a road which probably undoubtedly started life as an apple core thrown from the car […]


Blueberry

First of all I thought  I’d tell you about the Photoshop texture blending scripts created by our friends over at Digital Outback Photo,  they’re pretty easy to use and great for the photographer in a hurry!

Unfortunately neither of these delicious fruit grow outdoors down here in southern New Zealand, but the tamarillo’s at least grow almost like weeds further north. I’m jealous! […]


Plums on white

A slightly different starting photo and slightly different processing. I’m enjoying playing with photos in this soft desaturated style and have discovered after many failures that choice of subject and background are very important and likewise light, soft indirect light seems to give the best results. After much playing with textures, I think I’ve come […]


Plums

We have a self sown plum tree in our garden it produces fairly tangy, yellow fleshed plums with dark purple skins, in fact they look a bit like the Grand Duke plums that grew in the orchard on the farm where I grew up. Unfortunately our tree doesn’t crop very well so I try not […]


Quince Trio

Quinces are such beautiful fruit, well not to eat raw, but cooked they’re delicious,quince conserve, quince paste….yum!As well as being nice to look at they have such a lovely fragrance -a bowl of quinces can scent a room. Another photo from last autumn, these quinces are from my tree and were turned into quince paste […]
