I’ve been wanting to finish my marathon fruit photography series with the wonderful damsons we’ve just picked from the orchard. The colour of the bloom on the fruit is so blue and beautiful I’ve been wondering how best to capture it and had finally decided my plain blue crockery would be the perfect compliment.
I took my subjects out to my favourite spot in the shelter of the covered courtyard to get the full benefit of the natural light, placed them on some blue card and couldn’t believe the richness of the resulting images. The intensity of the colour is astonishing and changes from rich powder blue to purple tinged royal blue depending upon the angle of the camera. You may not believe it but none of the photos have had the colour saturated – I never like to edit too much, just a little sharpening and light adjustment here and there (the final image of this series is shown unedited).
