I made a crude Light tent by standing two chairs on a table and clamping an almost white bedsheet to them draping the sheet to form a sort of open ended box. Then with great difficulty I managed to get the Bananas to balance in the standing position, after eating one. With the Camera mounted on a tripod, I angled the flash up so that it would reflect off the top of the bedsheet box and distribute light all around the subject. Caption:
After their long voyage from the Banana Republic, not one in the Bunch could have anticipated the dangers associated with visiting friends of the Mango Family at the local grocery store.
