Having already pre-focused on my subject, I completely blacked out the room. I used an aperture of f11 and my shutter speed was set to bulb, using a remote release which has a locking facility I locked the shutter open. The shutter remained open for approximately 45sec's. During this time I used a pen-lite torch to paint the apples and pears with light using tiny cicular movments around each peice of fruit.
Another image scanned onto the computer using my Epson 4990.
Only the border and title have been added in photoshop.
