One 500 watt Hallogen Worklight. One white Blanket, white plate, Sigma Macro Lens, Juicy Tomatoes.

Simple set up, Light bounced off the white ceiling, I placed a white reflector card infront and below the tomatoes to fill the shadows.

I shot the the first frame with a gray card to balance the color in Post. This is the second frame...
