Citrus

I’m attempting to do a bit of catch-up on my lessons from BeStill and The Studio.  The first image is for Lesson 33 in BeStill52 (and for Texture Tuesday).  The assignment was to create a still life using lemons or other citrus fruit, create a bit of a story, and include varying heights.  Well, my story is that lemons were being sliced (you can invent the rest. . .).

  3. LOVE the top one with the touch of colors in the linen, the wood background just makes everything pop. Gorgeous focus on the second one…the lemon color is perfect!

  4. Yes! that top one is like a painting for sure! I had to giggle at your “story” because that’s how I felt too 🙂 I haven’t got mine done yet …

  5. Top one is my favorite also. I really like the varying heights of props to tell the story.

    Beautiful! That still life would have cost you $8.00 in Wisconsin!

    How beautiful these images are! Love the painterly look of the first one and the “march of the lemons” in the second

    Beautifully done! I’ve yet to do the citrus. But the more citrus photos I see, the closer I get. I like the top one best.
