Sliced Fruit on my Light Box

Where do ideas come from? In the case of these translucent fruit slices, an art consultant showed me an image of translucent fruit. I immediately thought of photographing fruit slices on my light box.

I’d never want to specifically imitate someone else’s art, but it seems fair enough to use a general idea as a leaping off point. I’ve seen plenty of images styled after my own flowers photographed for transparency in this fashion. I guess a moral is to keep looking at art of all styles and stripes. You never know when this will lead to an actionable idea.

Another benefit of photographing fruit in addition to photographing flowers: not only do the subjects not require a release, but also you can eat them once the photography is done.
