365 project - Day 185 - Pineapple Leaves

Day 185

Today, I went back to the pineapple to get a different angle from last time. I really wanted to emphasize the leaves on the fruit more than anything. Using one speedlight at 1/8 -0.7 power at the camera right, about 2' above the subject. I set the aperture to f.22 to render the background black...even thought I was shooting into a lit room. The shutter speed was at 1/60 with ISO at 100. A pocket wizard was used to trigger the flash. Learning and then applying new tricks with lighting is a lot of fun.
