[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a lazy afternoon today am alone at home so, I had a play with my kitchen recipes. Laid those veggies on the black cloth and used as BG too. The available light from an open window on the right side is the source and I placed a plain white plate on the left side facing towards the veggies to depuse the light and the shadows. Hope the result is not bad.

Pp work

Shot in Raw, levels, contrast added surface blurr and erased the tomatoes to retain in focus.

Your C&C are most welcome.

A great presentation by natural colours, indeed still life... we could remove them to the garden y not all the best BUDDY GADIANO.

Hi Buddy...beautiful job on the focus and exposure...great tones in this still life..nice work.


You show a good awareness of light and it's uses here Buddy - the BG being black is a good choice. I may have used layers and made the cloth under the veggies totally black (you can see the material to the right side of the garlic).
I was surprised f32 didn't give a deeper DOF then I saw that with the longer lens you'll always get a shallower DOF even at high aperture - maybe a 50mm lens would be a better choice?

Anyway - nice effort here. I know it's too hot to be shooting outside right now :-(


Hello Buddy!

Lovely Still life. I love the light management here. Personnally I might have just off-centered or cropped one side at least to avoid the framing symetry. I agree with the David about the deeper DOF.
