Cap­ture a cut­tingedge il­lu­sion

We’re all used to see­ing our fruit and veg whole, so why not try dic­ing things up a bit? Re­shap­ing what you’re pho­tograph­ing can be a great, cre­ative way to take un­usual im­ages. Here we can take some­thing nat­u­ral and round, then trans­form it into an an­gu­lar sculp­ture.

This is a great pro­ject to try at home. You could use a large win­dow pro­vid­ing nat­u­ral light or, for a more con­trolled set­ting, use flash (as we’ve done) or house­hold lamps to light your sub­ject. The only other things you’ll need are some fruit and a knife.

There is no limit to the de­tail you can go into. A large-scale image is sim­ple enough, com­posed of many items merely cut in half, or you can per­form more in­tri­cate op­er­a­tions on your food and get in close.
