Fig Platter

Fig Platter - student project

I wasn't sure about this image as it seemed almost too simplistic. I loved the lighting, the colour, the textures, shapes and the overall look however I wasn't sure if it provided enough of a story. 

So I added some more props, some Chincherinchee Flowers, Chestnuts for colour, some Hessian for texture.  I don't like this one as much though. 

Then I decided to try a 45 degree angle with a different subject, Fresh Cherries! I'm not sure about this image either, I feel that it might be a little too overexposed however this is to highlight the silver tray pattern.  The cherries in the shadow seemed to disappear so I added some water for detail.
