Pic(k) of the week 5: Pepper nr 1
Partly inspired by Master Photographer Edward Weston's "Pepper 30" I shot this image of a red pepper... Wanting to do some shooting while a sandstorm kept me inside, I decided to dust off my Tamron 90mm Macro lens and shoot some stuff straight out of the fridge!
Using two off-camera speed lights (SB800/9090 flashes) and an umbrella, I wanted my objects to really stand out.
Beside this pepper, an apple and egg shot using the same technique, can also be found in my Macro gallery.
I tried a black and white conversion, but do like the bright red one better.
