One bite at the apple

It’s said that you only get one bite at the apple. Usually along with other such notions as “you only live once”, “life’s too short” and other similar nonsense.
After taking this shot I can categorically and most vigourously refute this as in fact, it took me several bites to get it looking like that.

One Bite at the Apple

Didn’t work quite as well as I had in mind, but I did spend less than 5 minutes taking it and less than half of that steam-rollering it through photoshop. I know what needs to be improved with regard to composition and lighting, but given my poor back at the moment, I really couldn’t be pfaffing around with snoots, reflectors and multiple lights (Still have that image in my head for a re-shoot).

A bitesize crunchie with a bitesize chunk missing.

More extension tube attempts ended up in the bin this lunchtime. Had plenty of flowery thingies from in the garden, and a couple of things I found laying about indoors.¬† Not the greatest shot in the world, though with the flash off camera¬† I think I’ve got the Depth of Field issues sorted now !
Was going to try a couple of additional ones of this, bouncing the flash to eliminate some of the shadows. Unfortunately, I ate it instead.

Why is it you can never find a snail or a spider when you need one?
