Something Fruity About These Photos

Another one in my series of silly macro photography.  Last weekend I saved a thin slice of grapefruit  to see what effects I could generate by strong back illumination.  I placed the grapefruit in a glass baking dish and suspended it between two styrofoam blocks.  The lighting game from a single wireless flash unit placed on the table and aimed up towards the slice of fruit.  I made these shots slightly overexposed to create a more abstract look.  I think the last four photos in this gallery achieved what I envisioned.

Taken with an Olympus E-3 using Zuiko 50mm f2.0 and Zuiko 35mm f3.5 macro lenses.
