Day 81 Fruit of the Spirit

The assignment this week on Digitalphotographyschool.com is to take a photo using available window light. I set up this still life, fruit in our “fruits of the spirit” bowl. The verse is from Galatians 5:22-23…

the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control

Day 8 Fruit of the Spirit


“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” NIV Galatians 5:22-23

This Project 365 is a challenge for me.  Through the first week I have managed to post everyday except one, Friday.  I totally forgot about posting and then woke up early Saturday morning and posted the photo of the Christmas tree.  My goal is to upload a new photo each day, hoping that this project will help me develop an appreciation and awareness of photo subjects all around me.  There are so many subjects, no need to journey to a far away exotic land, when I can venture out into my own backyard, or even within my house.  I have been practicing my lighting technique using strobes.  I recently purchased a soft box which diffuses the light of the flash.  I used 1 flash (SB800) in a soft box, with a reflector in this photo.  I really like the effect.  I have learned a lot about lighting by following the Strobist blog.  There is a wealth of information on this blog.  If you want to learn more about affordable lighting for your photos, check it out.
