This is an older photo I had. I set up my black background and used natural light. There was a little light glare that was cleaned up in photoshop. The rest was processed in Lightroom.

A mouth watering specimen. Sharp focus, good color and lighting. If you were to add a white, green or red frame around the image the strawberry would stand out from the background. In my opinion that would make the image really pop! I do like the red against the black background.   Posted: 01/08/2020 18:55:57

Hi Pat: The red strawberry against the black background has a lot of impact. I concur with Priscilla some kind of a complimentary border would add that final "touch" to this picture.   Posted: 01/15/2020 18:18:37

Hello Pat, the black background really gives the red a lot of punch . Love the details and texture, Good application of negative spacing and nicely framed perspective and composition   Posted: 01/21/2020 07:49:04

Pat, very nice, simple, sharp image. Made me hungry. I think the angle of the fruit added impact and interest to the image. The black background works wonders with the red subject and directs the viewer to focus on the details. I like the image as is, would not change anything.   Posted: 01/25/2020 17:50:41
