It was a perfect day to visit the Del Mar Farmer's Market. Sunny, breezy, not too warm. The farmers and the shoppers were in good spirits. Produce sellers were surprised and pleased to have photos taken of their vegetables. I wanted to practice my food photography, and had studied some produce photographs in cookbooks. Like portrait photography, food photography seems to work best with a small depth of field; that is, only some parts will be in focus, and say, the background is slightly blurry, to highlight what is in focus. I tried to do this with the red pepper, and contrasted it from the green not only by color, but by not focusing on the green peppers. The composition could be better, had the green pepper (whose stem attachment is visible) been turned around. That green pepper distracts somewhat from the red center pepper, and leads the eye of the photo viewer out of the composition. Oh well.
