Day 53 of 365

Was at Costco today and while in the produce section saw a bag of baby bell peppers and thought they would make for a good still life. It's not a Edward Weston pepper photograph by any means but I like it regardless. Instead of using the lightbox I used natural light coming in from our south facing living room window. It's a dark rainy day so the light was pretty good. The light is coming from the left and I stood a white poster board to the right to reflect some light on that side. I couldn't get rid of the slight window reflection on the rim of the crystal bowl though.

I tried dropping peppers into the bowl as well to see if I could catch motion. I did a little post work to one and posted it to my Flickr.
