An apple a day...

(desat 40%, Kim's hughes texture, hardlight, 20% opacity)

The guest apartment we stayed in on our time away last week has a brick wall in the dining room and kitchen.
It also has great light!
I just had to take some photos with the brick wall as a background.
I didn't have all of the items I have at home to use as photography props,
so I made do with some fruit we had for snacking on and a bowl from the kitchen.

(Kim's avery texture, lighten 20% opacity)

Boy, do I love that wall!

(Kim's 1011 texture, hard light, 60% opacity, 50% erased from apple) 

Two years ago we took our oldest granddaughter and stayed in the same apartment.
I took this photo of her in front of that same wall.

  1. It'd be so cool to have a brick wall as an accent wall. I'd love that!!

  2. Wonderful backdrop. Amazing what you did with just some fruit, a bowl and a brick backdrop!

  3. I would say that the biggest problem with my participation in Be Still - Two is the lack of good backgrounds! (Well, inadequate light might be the real issue.) I'm contacting men relatives who might have some old barn wood that I can use! I think you did a wonderful job of taking advantage of your situation....snack fruits and that brick background. (Granddaughter is cute, too!)

    1. I'm regretting not signing up for Be Still, yet know, with all that's going on right now in my life, such as my daughter's upcoming wedding, I probably would not have time to do it justice.

    1. And while shooting it, I didn't notice the reflection in the table all that much. More luck than skill I guess!

    1. Dayle, I have a Nikon D7000. At the top of my blog there's a link tab that shows you my camera and various lenses.

    1. Sharon, I love this photo of my granddaughter, too. She's two years older and already lost much of the little girl look that this photo still has.

  18. Wonderful. Love the reflections in the table top. And, the red brick, red apples, and green grapes . . . very nicely done.
