Tomatoes and Carrots

For more table top practice, I drove down to Specialty Produce and grabbed a few interesting looking things to light and shoot.

I grabbed a couple beautiful heirloom tomatoes. They always have the pretties ones I have ever seen. Well, all the produce at Specialty Produce is pretty amazing.

I had a lot of fun lighting these things a bunch of different ways, just using one Alien Bees AB800 and a 47 inch octabox, but then angling it a little this way and that, and placing many little cut up pieces of paper to reflect a little light here and there.

These I jsut had to photograph, the color, the textures, I just thought they were great looking.

And to celebrate a long day of shooting I had a glass of rye whiskey.

The lights were set up already, why not shoot it?
