This project was more challenging than I thought it would be. I went with the sweet days of summer prompt, but threw a fresh spin on it. I used fresh fruit rather than a prepared dessert because summer is the perfect time for fresh fruit.
When conceptualizing this shoot I had two ideas: watermelon and lemonade. I did a less successful shoot with watermelon, but I wasn’t really pleased with the results. For the lemonade, I chose to keep things simple and tried to approach it like a product shoot for Simply Lemonade.
I’m pretty pleased with the results. If I went back and reshot this, I would light the right side of the image from farther behind to highlight the edge of the glass.
