Photographing natural products with natural light

Make use of the sunlight for shooting your products indoors

It's hard to beat natural light for shooting natural products. The winter sun shone long enough on Sunday to shoot a range of vegetables and fruit for my library.

As always, window light and reflectors on both sides.  The scruffy white wall and scruffier white radiator did some nice reflecting too, as did the less scruffy white shutters.


Shooting between F4 and F5.6 and at a shutter speed of between 125 and 160 meant the backgrounds were subtly blurred and there was no need for a tripod. Which I'd left in the office.
