This video will teach you how to plant celery at home and also show you an easy way to blanch the stem which will help remove the bitterness and make it tender.
The one dozen cut tulips that I bought yesterday are starting to open up. Not all of them are at the same stage of development. I’m going to document their progress since I enjoy lighting them, and I need the practice.
This was lit with an SB600 in a softbox on either side of the flower. The strobes were set to manual, and I adjusted the output until I got a result that I like. They were triggered by the pop up flash on my D90 in commander mode. Because I used an aperture of F22, a shutter speed of 1/180 second and an ISO of 200, no ambient light was recorded and the background went black.
Other plants and flowers that I’ve photographed using strobes can be seen in my strobe lit plant set. In the description, I list resources that I’ve used to learn how to do this. www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157628079460544/…
