Long day at work and the rain left me uninspired, then I got home a saw the yellow pepper the wife purchased at the grocery store … I got some inspiration. I love the contrast between the yellow butter skin and the green stem. I tried to find a neutral background, and decided on the bamboo cutting board, then close down the framing so that only the board showed. I lost a 1/3 of the vegetable, but got the affect I was looking for, but the flash was too harsh. So a quick draping of cheesecloth over the on camera flash helped to defuse the light just enough.
I present day 5 ….
