This apple is pretty boring. I decided to try some filters in PS rather than spend time reshooting. I need some decent lights! Posted by Picasa

    I hear ya on the lights! The ones at my house are so poorly positioned….I always have to work so hard to get the lighting right!

    I really like the canvas look of this shot. What other art filters did you use? Might try doing watercolor or something to make it look even more textured.

  2. The lighting on this shot is actually quite nice, if you ignore the tendency for people to want “the perfect lighting, everytime!”

    It’s warm, inviting, rustic, and suits the green of the apple very well.

    What really puts me off, however, is the fact that you have a great curving shadow, but the texture you applied is like a screen on top, and not the background addition that would have really improved the photo (in my opinion). I don’t know if it’s possible to curve the texture with the curve of the background, but it’d probably be worth the research?

    Anyway, that’s just the one thing that really stands out as being “wrong” for me.

  3. I like the shadow on this.

    As for lights, I can’t help you much. Only trick I have is to use dive lights, so if you dive, give those a shot. Otherwise, I’m all about desk lamps and ceiling lights.
