ISO: 100 | SS: 1/100 SEC. | APERTURE: F/4.5 | FOCAL LENGTH: 40MM
Created on the spot, this beautiful full of fall flavors pie was so delicious, so simple, and so flavorful! Rosemary infused syrup to compliment the clean flavor of the apples, all combined in the casing of the flaky dough, yummmmmm! I chose a soft simple background, and just added some of the ingredients around it to show what makes each slice so special. I placed my AlienBees™ B400, with a softbox, and balanced some
of the shadows with the white card. The result I was looking for was a Fall morning brunch, simple and crisp, just like the pie I photographed.
