I Went to Buy a Pepper...
I went to buy a pepper at the store, and then bought two. Why two? Because this was such an amazing looking pepper I wanted to photograph it, and so I bought a second one to eat. This is an astounding object, isn't it? I used a powerful studio flash unit to light this. I wanted soft light, so I put the pepper on a piece of black cardboard on the dining room table, and then aimed the flash at the ceiling. So the light source is a huge area of light on the ceiling, and it has a directional quality, but it is very soft light. Perfect for this subject, I think.
