Google seems to think it’s a Christmas post? It’s not. Nope, next post for context lol
That brings the Edward Weston Veggie Challengeto completion. I even threw a 5th one on because I was meh on the picture but the gourd itself is pretty neat.
I ended up setting my camera to take Raw+Jpeg and using the Monochrome styles since I can’t edit raw at the moment. All Done * pats self on back *
Anyway, so I looked the man up and I felt it was right up my alley. I enjoy making ordinary stuff look awesome, that’s why I like taking close ups :D I did some research and ended up seeing that I couldn’t exactly replicate his technique. I would have put the veggie in the closet, stopped that baby down and let it run all night if it wouldn’t amount to a barrel of noise. Which it does after only an hour on f/16. If you know me at all you know I just LOVE /s unproductive noise in my images. It is my nemesis, so a barrel of noise was not going to do.
I ended up putting a coat down on the floor in the kitchen, propping up a light up makeup mirror on a roll of paper towel, using my phone light and some dusk light coming in through the window.
I present to you my first two veggies : The Evocative Leaf Lettuce, and the Mysterious Magnetic Mushroom ( i know it’s technically a fungus, but it was next to the vegetables and I needed them for dinner lol ) !
I am still messing around with my Okra ( what a peculiar veggie ), Squash and maybe something else, maybe garlic if I have luck ^^ My carrots sadly wilted, they had such pretty leafy tops too.
The mushrooms were fabulous by the way:D Marinated in balsamic, olive oil, garlic, garlic, spices and topped with provolone, pesto mayo, roasted red pepper and some Evocative Leaf Lettuce to boot ~ This one was actually not eaten on because it had a crappy bit on top :p
I’m not sure who to tag next, there are so many challenges going around I don’t want to overwhelm anyone lol
Here we have a little fly enjoying his flower perch :)
