You Are What You Eat


A few more shots with that macro setup, this time using some food. Mostly appetizing stuff; I’ll save the liver and tripe for another time. Shallots, parsley, black peppercorns, red pepper flakes, and sea salt…

Italian Parsley

Black Peppercorns

Red Pepper Flakes

Sea Salt

A little bit of focus fail on those peppercorns, showing exactly how shallow the depth of field is. Ideally I’d be using a tripod and cable release — even more ideally a focus rail to make the tripod work easier. As it is, I was handholding the camera and a flash on these, and also holding my breath.

    I like the pepper flakes picture and that shallot.

    Sorry – I like them all actually – really must get those extension tubes! – but I am contractually obliged to make that joke whenever the possibility arises :-)
