Here's another lighting trick- a translucent slice of fruit placed on an white-lit iPad screen. In this case, it's the same Jalapeño I shot above, aged to a bright orange color.

Benitoite, it's generous of you to give those descriptions and samples. Thanks! I'll be able to experiment more when the rooms being remodeled become functional.

Crushed pepper. Did you know the highest concentration of Capsaicin in peppers is contained in the placenta, that is, the flesh containing the seed pod?

I didn't know. Do you mean the thin covering around each seed?

Fish tank, white background, 3speedlites, 3-5 second exposure, someone drops peppers, trigger your flashes with handheld pocket wizard and keep your fingers crossed. ;-)a

Here's a Manzano pepper. The apple chili. Quite warm and has black seeds. Very tasty!
