Very creative and cool idea! Now, how did you get all black background from the original white wall?

Nice job. I like how the fruit cut-up is arranged to make a nice composition.

I would say just put the setup together and shut off the lights. As long as the side of the flash is covered you won't get any light on the wall. I used a black background and didn't shut off the lights, but all you need is to keep the light off your background.

zinco, I think I'd prefer the chair on the left removed but that's a nice image. Also wonder about shooting in the golden hour with all the lights in the windows on ... guess that would be hard to coordinate, eh? :-)

yeah this time it was more my assistant that needed coordination...

Good results from a simple setup.

Whoops, sorry for delayed response! I tried the simplest approach which was to just have the flash set next to the pear and bounce it off the wall. This way it kept the flash from being too strong (I believe I had WA diffuser flipped down as well) and lighting pretty evenly. I actually had the living room as the background rather than the wall.

Since I was so close to the wall I figured there would be some annoying shadows. It was easy enough to completely underexpose the background since the indoor lighting was pretty low. Hope that helps! As katodog said, If you turn off the lights and just expose for the subject then it should be pretty easy.

And katodog I agree! Ive been tempted to grab all sorts of produce to cut up haha.

I cut up a cucumber last night, unfortunately it never made it to the shooting table. Wound up in my daughter's tummy... Did a few more apples though...
