To create this photograph I placed a white tray on a white paper backdrop and used natural light from the side and front of the subject. I used all white to create negative space and to highlight the overripe pomegranate. In post processing I enhanced the color slightly using a curves layer in Photoshop CC. I then added a touch of vintage haze using a levels layer in Photoshop CC.
The title of the photograph is based on the meaning of the flower of the pomegranate plant in the Victorian Language of Flowers – elegance.
In the language of flowers the plum blossom means to keep your promise. Although the blossoms are short-lived, the beauty of the flower is everlasting in the eye of the one who was blessed to see and smell it.
