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.
