Laurence, I followed a thread with birthday wishes to your gallery. It is excellent, one of my favorites. Happy Birthday. I am curious how you lighted this photo. Light tent? You did a great job on it. #2498395

Laurence Saliba 3/5/2006 8:56:12 AM

Thanks so much every one!!! Dennis I only used room light and a simple maglight. Hope this helps!! #2499080

GREAT..... #2738880

Tom Barnes 1/24/2007 7:25:43 PM

I'm sorry if I think that the tomato looks one-dimensional and the drop of water under is a bit too dark. I feel the tomato could have used a spritz of water to make it look fresh and appetizing. Maybe a card on the side to bounce some light onto the sides of the tomato to make it POP from the background. The surface could have benefitted from some light to give it some dimension. Keep working on it! Try to study some old photo annuals from the 80's to early 90's. Good luck! #3864258
