Step 7: Light and render setup

As usual we'll use a studio lighting setup: an emission plane on the top of the scene (pure white color) and 2 emitter planes at the sides (one with an emission shader with a warm light and the other with a cold light). Depth of field is a good way to improve realism; set the camera f/stop at 4 and the number of blades at 6. Use 1000 pass, press F12 and wait for the render result. (ATTENTION: you can't use GPU with the SSS node).

Open the image with Gimp and adjust the levels and curves.

How to use different materials on the same object

Using 2 or more materials on the same object is a good way to improve final result. In this work I used a B/W texture to mix a red and a green material onto the strawberries (Texture Paint mode is a great tool to do that).
