Still working on doing still life photos here.  I asked DH what sauces in the fridge does he like to put on his food the most and this is what happened.  Actually the Tabasco sauce is his favorite; puts it on almost everything.  I am learning and have learned that when shooting subjects like this you will run into some of these issues:

Shadows you may or may not want occur depending on where the light is coming from.

You will discover that what you once thought was clean wasn’t as in water stains on crystal glasses or fingerprints just from moving the objects around.

Dust just “magically” appears in the shot but you won’t see it (sometimes) until you upload the image and use the visualize spots tool or you zoom in.

About the prior tip – you will need one of those lint rollers for your backdrop or if it is vinyl a nice soft non shedding cloth to clean with.

Glass and lights mean reflections!

Hope your weekend is saucy…

    Tabasco when green chile is not available. It’s amazing how lenses pick up dust and everything we don’t generally notice. Photographing into mirrors is the worst.

    I have an assortment in my pantry as I love it hot and this pic is a reminder to get something to eat.

    Nice. Who knew lint would be such an issue. Cheers!
