Juicy Nectarines

I thought I'd try and prove to you all that I'm not just eating lots of the lovely cake that Karen made :))

I bought some lovely nectarines today and I thought they would make a really nice picture. 

I'll start with my first shot and progress to the final shoot - my goodness don't I sound as if I know what I'm talking about, lol.

I took my faithful point and shoot canon camera and a single nectarine and started with this.


Then I took this one - which is ok but nothing special.


So, I picked up the Canon 5D (you know the one that I couldn't use for Emma's prom pictures)  and with some help from Danny - thanks Dan :) I took this.
I LOVE IT!!!
Don't they look juicy!!!!

This has just proved to me that I really need to learn how to use the DSLR properly

Then I thought I would show you the mess I made while shooting this picture. Water, water everywhere, lol.

Oh and let me tell you those nectarines were SO tasty. ;))

Great shots, Ellie. You're not really convincing me that you didn't eat lots of the cake but the fruit definitely looks healthy and yummy!

Amy Burzese said...

That looks so good. And I have to MOVE the mess in order to take a photo like that.

Lasse said...

Looks really lovely Ellie !

Like me you have fun experimenting with your photography, great set.

Roan said...

Yep, you do need to learn. But I'm of the opinion you never really get the DSLRs figured out. I sure don't and I've had mine for over a year now.

Pat said...

The water drops made them special.

Rose said...

My mouth is watering just looking at them! Specially that last shot!

Deborah said...

and you are right! the DSLR made a fantastic difference!
