Cleaning the metal objects turned out to be easier in Photoshop than in the real world. I was able to mitigate the glare on the fruit with a polarizing filter. This was the first time in a long time that I shot a piece of reflective steel. The angle of your camera relative to the light is key but I did not want the highlights to go completely so I compromised. Still more to learn on perspective and depth of field but my lighting experiments are coming along. An Xrite colour checker is coming in handy, when I remember to use it, for white balance, and I am tethering the camera to a laptop, giving an easier way to look at composition and lighting before taking the picture, and reviewing the results immediately afterwards.
