Fruit can be an easy still life subject to shoot, first it’s easy to get hold of, and second there’s all sorts of interesting details that a macro lens will do a really good job at capturing.

This first photo was taken using a light tent with 2 flashes and sitting on a white plate.

This next photo was taken in the same light tent but with a black lining instead of the white one you see above.

Using the Canon 100mm f2.8 macro lens this was taken with the help of a flash directly aimed at the kiwi.

Finally this was taken in the light tent again, against a black background.

Of course, there was some light editing in post, most notably some adjustments to the colour intensities and some other adjustments like white balance and adding a vignette.
