A-Z Fruit and Veg Photo Project: J is for Jalapeño

I didn’t opt for fresh jalapeños for this shoot, as I had a jar of  these hotties preserved sitting in my fridge – handy!
Really thinking about what I wanted to convey in these photos, I decided to use direct light and utilise the highlights and shadows that would be created. I wanted the highlights to show off the shine from the jalapeños – as they have been stewing in their own spicy juices for months!

Being the Einstein that I am, I didn’t wash my hands after the shoot, ( I only wiped them, so as not to get juices on the camera), and I inevitably rubbed my eyes later on and yep, you guessed it – ouch!


What are your thoughts on the highlights and direct light? Does it add feeling for you? I get a bit nervous when I am shooting away from the ‘light and airy’ look?!

What is this all about?

    • Great! Thanks. I’m so happy with the way it turned out. I was struggling with how to take a photo of the jar of jalapenos – ‘take them out perhaps’? Sometimes I forget to look outside the box, but eventually it came!
