Day 219 – 06/12/11 – Peach

One of my goals with Photos to 40 is to learn through the process of using my camera each day.  Today, I learned that peaches are the pits to photograph.

Believe it or not, even with their infamous fuzz there’s little texture on the outside of a peach to pick up with a macro lens.  There’s even less texture on the inside.  There is the pit, of course, but let’s just say that experiments with that came out looking like the images from a brain surgery gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Some times when I set out without a previsualized image just playing around yields great results.  Other times, not so much.

I came up with another image that I do like, though I can’t exactly express why.  It doesn’t fit into the fruit series so much, though were I to revisit colors it would fit well there.

  1. Brain surgery gone wrong, ahahahaa. There’s a theme for ya, “The Pits” (I think u can figure it out). 😛
    Blackberry would be an interesting shot for the fruit theme.

      I’m actually hoping we can pick up some blackberries and raspberries at the store in the next few days, they’d definitely be a nice addition. “The Pits” theme could go in soooo many directions though 🙂

    I certainly do like this one, great texture shot 🙂

  3. Do I see a Spanish theme (on your second shot) here 😉
