Picked these up in the grocery store, a little spendy this time of year but worth every penny, delicious. Tastes like summer.
When I started this project, I couldn't have taken this pic. Just took it in my kitchen 9 pm no extra lighting no flash. I've learned to use my Manual mode on my camera! Yeah me :D Toyed some with other settings like picture control, set it on Vivid. Upped the exposure compensation and adjusted the shutter speed til I got what I wanted. I used the tripod, I need to get more comfortable with it as well. That's why I'm doing this project. Even when I don't feel like taking a picture I pick up the camera and find something. Not just anything, something I'm not too embarrassed to post here.
I am also learning more about self-discipline. It is a matter of choice. My choice. When I chose self-discipline there are great rewards!
oh, and the only editing I did was to hit the auto contrast/auto color and cropped it a little in picasa.
