I have been collaborating with Julian Lara of Lara Farms on the below group of green sapote, sapodilla, and caimito pictures. Julian selects pristine varieties from his collection at the farm and when the fruit is at perfect ripeness he brings them to me. I set up my lighting (Elinchrom studio strobes) and Julian works on different cuts and placement. Together, we are making some of the best images of these rare fruits that I have seem.
