Lime & Coconut w/ Kim Thomas

Project 1: Solid Color Background

Here I wanted to shoot something with multipe textures and this old camera was calling my name. I would have liked the reflection to be more visible. I think I will try to shoot this again to get the desired result.

Project 2: Product Scene

In this shoot I wanted to connect a simple product with it's organic ingredients. Because of the darker background, I was able to create the desired reflections that I missed in project 1. Thanks for any and all feedback.


Canon 60D w/ 50mm 1.4 USM on tripod
3 Canon 430EX II Speedlights
2 Shoot through umbrellas
1 24" Softbox on boom above

Background Material:

White sheet of PVC in project 1
Roll of cardboard like paper in project 2

Plexiglass was layed over the background material to achieve reflections in both projects. However, the second project came out better as I had a little more practice and I tethered my captures to see immediate results on laptop.


I'd love to read your thoughts and advice.
