We had a bunch of chili peppers given to us so I used these to practice taking food shots. Later I cooked some and then also I dried some of the chilies. This also has a dusk overlay to it. The original is much brighter and intense. I like taking photographs in natural light. It has the best results. You just need to watch for glare areas and that they don’t over power your image. I probably could of taken them out with software but, haven’t worked on this image that much.

But, for the purpose I was using it for it’s readable and wasn’t for a company or brand post. I didn’t have my helper Sammie at home at the time. I often share my favorite food and recipes on my other site. Most are quick and easy, some are baking as that is our favorite. I have a recipe gallery you can view and grab recipes from too!
