Hello Im Tanya from NZ... just wondering am I allowed to ask what sort of camera and lens you use to get that detail?
I've been slowly back tracking through your archives, beautiful imagery and colours.. I especially love the skies :)

Yay, grocery night! Thanks, Rick. Another great edition. I especially like the strawberries. Nice color contrast between the skin and them other thingies.

For posts like Tanya's, I wonder if a link on your front page to a discussion about your equipment - and your blog's tagline about it not being about the camera - would be a help. Also, a link to some of the tips you've given us - my favorite is looking behind you when viewing a sunset to see what the sunset lights up.

Just suggestin'.

That's an excellent idea Pete has.

Why do I have a sudden urge for a Daquiri? Ummmmm.

The strawberries look DELICIOUS! Awesome color in that one! And I love the shot of the green stuff with the angles and lines we see there. Great perspective.

Leeks? Beautiful.

My daughter is becoming a pretty good photographer so I have the same questions as Tanya. planning the 100mm canon macro for her birthday, but would love to know what you use.

I'm lucky enough to be a client of Rick's, so I get to see him work. His professional stuff is great, and I've occasionally seen him shoot his blog shots on the side. He never uses work shots on the blog, but he has shot fun stuff in between shoots.

I believe Rick uses a Fuji F30 for his blog shots. He did use a Fuji F10 (and probably still does) before he upgraded. Several people in my group (including me) who work with Rick bought an F10 a year or two ago on his recommendation, and they are great. I can take an OK shot, but I can assure you... like Rick says, it's not about the camera. My shots on the same camera never come close to Rick's.

Hi guys... thanks for the great comments. I'm on the road right now and I only have a minute. Everyone is always surprised to find out that the produce shots are done with a tiny little pocket camera... the Fuji F30. It has a great macro function. Great lens, great low-light performance with no noise. The produce is all shot in the store. I try to keep a low-profile and not let people see what I'm doing. It's a tiny little camera that I can hide in my palm. Gotta run!

Thanks Rick... apologies everyone.. if I hadn't been so hypnotised by the yumminess of it all I would have noticed that you've had to answer that question before.. and like those gone before I can't believe its shot with a lil snapper and in store!
Thats awesome.. definitely not about the camera.. its about the artist's talent

Gorgeous pics. Those strawbs are absolutely spectacular.

Rick, I'm sure you've probably considered it, but what about the seafood department? I'm thinking smoked Alaskan salmon would look pretty interesting...uh-oh, now I'm getting hungry.
