365 Project - Day 7

Adding a little spice for day #7 with a some pepper action. For this shot I used cross lighting to get the shadows and then a little post-production work to add emphasis to them. When I began my interest in photography many years back and started reading photography books to learn the craft and for inspiration, I saw Edward Weston's "Pepper #30" and I've always wanted to give my take on that famous image one day. While this is not my take on it yet, playing with the lighting, angles, and positions did spark my motivation to start looking around the produce section of the grocery store for bell peppers to give it a shot in the future. But for today you have "Brian Palmer's Pepper no.1", Now that has a nice ring to it, Thanks 365!
