HOME GROWN HOT SAUCE PREPARATION
Constant lights for studio use have come along way in the past few years. While they don’t have the power and motion stopping ability of strobes they do have a place not only for video use but also for still life especially food photography. While I still prefer to use strobes especially Good AD600 Pro’s and AD300 Pro’s, I’m starting to explore the LED constant light ability of the Godox FV200 for food and low key product photography.
Hand held LED lighting in the studio is also even more possible with modern cameras due to their incredible image stabilization. Like most modern cameras the new Nikon Z7 II combines 5 axis image stabilization with super fast focusing to create super sharp imagery. The new Z 50mm f/1.2 S is Nikon’s fastest auto-focus lens to date, while lenses like this usually aren’t known for fast focusing the new Z 50mm is blazingly fast and incredibly accurate, perfect for this style of work.
This summer has been very mild, humid and with lots of rainfall. Perfect for the veggie patch, so much so that we have a plethora of vegetables, fruit and herbs, thus lots of preserving each week. With plenty of preserving done its time to use those excess prik jinda chilies, garlic, lemon and herbs and make some hot sauce.
