High key forks
Posted By: irish_spring, 05-25-2008, 03:06 PM

This week I'm investigating what can be done with a standard household fork. Here is what I managed so far.

Used DFA100mm, two forks, some milk, a 540FGZ diffused thru a lightsphere. No Photoshop, just some basic stuff in Lightroom.

very interesting - it looks like the tines are appearing out of nowhere.

It looks like a very painful version of what they call (around here) an adirondack chair.

It is not as original as I would like. I borrowed the idea form a shot I saw on Flickr. My attempt was a pretty clear copy of the technique. Only the framing was different from the original.

I was happy with the results despite the lack of originality though. A few more projects like this and I might even get the hang of my strobes!

The milk is the key to the weird appearance of the tines. I have a bunch of images with colored water and some with no liquid, but you need a really opaque liquid to get the right effect.

Thanks for the comments.

How about changing it up by say; putting a strawberry between the tines of the fork. The contrast between the white of the milk and the red and green of the strawberry suspended above it might look pretty good. Maybe peas would work well as well because they are smaller and wouldn't obscure the fork, especially if you speared them on the tines. Just a couple of suggestions.

I like the idea of the strawberries - particularly as I have some in my fridge right now The image I posted was BW converted, but only because the original was picking up the tiniest of color from the room in the metallic reflections on the forks (which was distracting in an image with such a small number of hues). With a strawberry I think the color might work out pretty good.
