    Now I want to pluck them off the screen and start preparing my Greek Farmer's Salad... with goat cheese and black olives and olive oil.... yummy!
    Lighting is good. Did you use any SPECIAL set up, professional lamps or so? (Which I would not have, so I would either have to wait for the sun to shine through the windows, which won't happen again :er: today :grumpy:, or I would have to find a lamp light somewhere...) And what provided your clean white background (makes me think of children's books by DorlingKindersley).

    I now have a light box and some lamps I bought at K-mart with 60-watt bulbs in them for shooting shots like this but at the time, I used my D70 and oriiginally setup using my SB-800 flash unit on my kitchen table. I used a few sheets of white paper both behind and under the subject but I was getting too many shadows so I brought it outside to my desk and used the suns light and used my sb-800 for fill flash. I used my Nikkor 60mm Macro f/2.8 lens to shoot this.

    gorgeous colors... i would try diffusing the light a bit though... a homemade reflector or butter paper may work
    thanks for sharing :D

    Not sure what buetter paper is but your right, a little light difusion would be great on this shot. Now that I have a light box, I plan on re-shooting this shot soon, enxt time I get peppers.

    Aside from panning and blurs, still life are my 2nd favorite subject. They can be a little trickly, mainly lighting.

    I actually tried to take a shot like this the other day. I was actually IN Kroger, IN the produce section and after I got the shot off some guy tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to leave the store immediately.
