The picturesque photography of fruit chooses appropriate props according to the background characteristics, and emphasizes the atmosphere and thickness of the picture with its solemn tones and tones. When shooting picturesque works, we should not only make the pictures delicate, light-intensive and beautiful, but also pursue the perfect combination of emotion, artistic conception and form.
