A-Z Fruit and Veg Photo Project: J is for Jalapeño
I didn’t opt for fresh jalapeños for this shoot, as I had a jar of these hotties preserved sitting in my fridge – handy!
Really thinking about what I wanted to convey in these photos, I decided to use direct light and utilise the highlights and shadows that would be created. I wanted the highlights to show off the shine from the jalapeños – as they have been stewing in their own spicy juices for months!
Being the Einstein that I am, I didn’t wash my hands after the shoot, ( I only wiped them, so as not to get juices on the camera), and I inevitably rubbed my eyes later on and yep, you guessed it – ouch!
What are your thoughts on the highlights and direct light? Does it add feeling for you? I get a bit nervous when I am shooting away from the ‘light and airy’ look?!
What is this all about?
