Produce Blogging #19




Because Thursday night is grocery night! The red pepper is pretty obvious... do you know what the other two are?

For the second, the top of a pineapple.

Third: spring onions or chives.

As always Rick, they look good enough to eat.

Artichoke and celery. And that is one succulent red pepper!

Leeks and Green Onions ... judging by the file names. ;)

I knew I should have changed those filenames but I was just too lazy. You know the old saying Paul... "if you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin!"

Sharon... welcome back to the land of the living!

# 3 is spring onions; the otherone stumps me. It is too long to be a pineapple top and to narrow to be artichoke, I think. But what do I know?

Rick, how are you able to take such great macro shots in grocery store lighting? Does your camera have low grain at higher ISO's? Or are you using that grain removal software you mentioned? Just curious. My camera starts to get really noisy at 200 ISO, which is what I would probably have to use to get macro shots in a grocery store.

Philip... the Pentax Optio s4i also gets noisy at higher ISOs. I usually shoot at 200. I'd rather shoot at 400 or 800. That would be fine with the big expensive Fuji, but not on the pocket camera. At 200 it's not awfully bad, just bad. But if you reduce the file to 400x300 pixels to post on the web, all manner of bad stuff disappears. I'm shopping for a new pocket camera because it's depressing that I'm producing all of this work that really isn't much good for anything but web use. This photo was reproduced in a regional magazine recently. It was little embarrassing that it was so noisy. They reproduced it a little larger than I thought they would.
