Man that corn looks delicious!

You really do just use a little point and shoot don't you.
Tell me that one was for the pic - you don't do these one-handed do you? Or do you? In that case I'd have to hang up my camera! :)

As always, great shots!

Rick Lee said...

Generally speaking, yeah... one handed. I'm trying to be surreptitious.

Anna said...

I want to sink my teeth into that corn Rick! Yum.

Catherine said...

Super sexy veggies!

Super Babe said...

Rick: Really cool produce pictures today.

The Calico Quilter said...

If you were not joking, I'm possibly even more jealous realizing these are not studio photographs! Your still life produce shots are amazing.

Rick Lee said...

Yep, Quilter... this question comes up a lot. All of the produce shots are done in the store with a tiny little pocket camera. Mine is a Fuji F100 which is a great camera and makes almost noise-free images at ISO 800. But just about any little pocket camera has a macro setting if you look for it. Stores have rules against taking pictures usually, so I am careful to not let the staff see me taking the pictures.

Ah, I thought you must have had an 'arrangement' with your local grocer... I was hunted out of a Supermarket in Sydney after trying to 'do a Rick Lee' on the Brussels sprouts... fortunately the local Vietnamese Grocers near where I live were much kinder and are happy for me to fiddle around making produce pics... though I've a loooooong way to go before my veggies look anything like Master Lee's.

Thanks for the technical tips, Rick.

Last picture...rhubarb?

Rick Lee said...

Yep, it's rhubarb. It has just started showing up in the store a few weeks ago.
