Fruit currently residing in the ripening baskets had some potential for a quick tabletop photo.
Nikon D700 with 70-150mm f3.5 manual focus lens at around 100mm. F22, 1/250s ISO 1600.
SB-800 flash bounced off wall to left of camera. Black background is a sheet of black wrapping paper taped to the wall and draped over a card table. To prevent the background from showing a shiny reflection from the flash, I held a large piece of black cardboard to cast a shadow during the photo. I used the camera self-timer - because I needed 2 hands to hold the cardboard. Live View used to focus.
