Pineapple Abstract by John Caruso
Gear: Canon 5D Mark II, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
Exposure: f/2.8 at 1/15, Exposure Compensation -1, ISO 400, Natural Light
As you already know, I'm a fool for great, natural light. So when I saw the late afternoon sun flowing all over this pineapple, I just had to grab my camera and make an exposure.
I tried a few different compositions and lenses. However, I decided upon using a macro lens and getting in nice and tight to try and capture the essence of the pineapple. To further push the boundary, I used a wide aperture to create the shallow depth of field.
