Day 65/365 Natural Peppers....

by Russell Smith March. 06, 2019 229 views

Tonight's dinner is pepper steak so I decided to play with the peppers after I took them out of the Fridge. I wanted to see what I could do with shiny objects and see if I could make the highlights work the way I wanted them to. I do think I could do a tad bit better on the knife but overall I am happy with the shot. It was both fun and frustrating to make this image . My origional idea well after 10 or 15 shots I threw it out of the window and decided to go a different direction which was the result of this image.

Figuring out how to get the light I wanted was the fun and frustrating part of this exercise.

I like the image! I relate to Your narrative, I either get it at the very first or the end of my my many shots.. 😊

On things like this I have an idea of how I want the final shot and I start basic and build from there. Then I reach a point that I go ummmm wtf is that and how do I fix it and start tinkering. If I cannot figure it out I during the shoot I will try and look into it more to figure it out.

I see you are in the same boat I was today. In creating the shot for tomorrow's theme, I captured 50 pictures and finally settled on one. But after cleaning up and putting everything away I realized the one I settled for has several flaws of which, one of them is the wrinkle in the towel and the second is no doubt one you will find for me when you see the post smile (of  course that's not to say there were only two flaws in the entire picture.

The great thing (in my mind) when I find screw ups like this or something else is I know to look for it next time. I was reaching the point I was frustrated because I was having issues figuring out how to tweak a highlight on the background (vinyl surface I was shooting on had a few milky spots from reflections).
