Weekly Photography Challenge – the humble vegetable

This week we want you to go find some produce and photograph it! Think outside the box:

  • Try black and white
  • Shoot macro
  • Go for an abstract
  • Backlight it
  • Light paint it

Share your images below:

Simply upload your shot into the comment field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see or if you’d prefer upload them to your favourite photo sharing site and leave the link to them. Show me your best images in this week’s challenge. Sometimes it takes a while for an image to appear so be patient and try not to post the same image twice.
