I am learning still life. I would love some thoughts and suggestions on how to improve. These were shot with a Nikon Z9 a few with the 135 Plena and a few with the 105 Macro.

First 2 don't do much. The 3rd one is pretty interesting, but the tops of the berries are too close to the "horizon line" and it seems a bit dark. Most of them are.

You using one light? One light up and in back is okay to start, but don't forget side lighting can work. And diffuse it. Also, try a bounce card.

Like on the 3rd one, maybe side light it, with the light slightly more on the camera side of the subject. Helps get a of light on the front side of the berries. Don't want front lighting, so don't do that.

Very creative and unique Tammy!
The wood texture creates a uniquely warm glow to the fruit! The blueberries and raspberries blend very well with the wood and spoon!

Do you allow the "pups" to have fruit?
MIne loved apples!
Well done!

Some of these are nice, Tammy, but they almost all could be improved with a reflector of sorts to better refine and sculpt shapes and fill-in with some additional light. But they look good enough to eat!

MIne loved apples! They love it all, even tomatoes.
