(Day 242) - Apples from the Stars

I'm shooting all my photo from a 'top-down' perspective this month. I really like photos of food taken from this perspective and many 365ers are so good at creating delicious looking shots like this.

Knew I wanted to shoot apples but didn't know in what way. As I was cutting the apples, I was able to get some nice star-shaped surprises, perfect for a 'top-down' photo! :)
Perfect for top-down photography indeed!

Very cool Chris!

I love top down perspectives, but they can be a tad challenging to set up and see!

YUM!

Lovely composition. Beautiful bright red apples (and stars of course) and great texture in the tiles.

This is brilliant . I didn't even noticed the stars at first , the composition drew me in. Love Your Project :-)

I knew it was yours immediately! So glad to know that you have discovered the stars in the center of apples! You show them off very well in this wonderful composition!

@dibzgreasley - Don't I know it Debs! Trying to get my tripod at the right spot, the camera height correct, and the subject in the right spot is tough. This hasn't been my easiest monthly theme but the results have been fun!

@francoise - Ummm...yes...it is. I tried on our table but I couldn't get my tripod and camera in the right position to capture the entire subject. They kept hitting our ceiling fan! So I cleaned the floor really good and was easily able to get the shot on our kitchen floor. The tiles were really compatible with the apples too. Plus the 5 second rule applies, right? Haha!

@lesip - Thank you very much for the kind words Leslie! And I'm really enjoying your project too and your hot air balloon series!

Wonderful seasonal shot. What kind? Honeycrisp?
October 15th, 2015  
@kt8ird - That's so kind of you Kate! I'm really humbled to know that you told one of your coworkers about my photos. Thank you so much!

My husband is a tiler, walked by and said, "Nice floor!" Nothing about the apples! This is really nicely composed with that little curve of apple slices. Great job! Oh and even though you cleaned the floor, I do hope you rinsed the apples anyway before (IF???) you ate them!

@amandal - Thank you Amanda! They're Gala apples. They do look similar to Honeycrisp, which is one of my favorite names for an apple by the way. :)

@cjphoto My favorite taste for apples is the HC. YUM!
October 15th, 2015  
@olivetreeann - Haha too funny! Sounds exactly like a tiler! Say thanks to your husband for me. I did rinse them but I didn't eat the one I put on the floor. The ones in the bowl were mighty delicious though!
