Peach Fuzz

One of the major things you learn as a food photographer is patience. It takes a while to find the perfect meal components, then match them with dish-ware and style the plate just so it looks perfectly appetizing. It is a process that is both therapeutic and at times, frustrating. 

However, sometimes, you just need to step back and not get in the way of what is already perfect. When photographing fruits in their natural element, with their leaves still intact, surrounded by sunlight, the work of the photographer is minimal. Through experience, the fruit and the sunlight know exactly how to bring out the best in each other. The texture and color of these peaches was brought out in such a perfect way without disturbing their natural beauty and allowing the viewer's eyes to feel the fuzz on the fruit and the sharpness of the leaves. It presents an image of calm that even the shutter of the camera tries not to disrupt as it attempts to capture that which can only be described as perfection.
