2017-04-29 like shelling peas

Having a lot of tasks on my "to-do-list" today, and the light from the window was so pretty. So I did not think long for what to shoot today, and I opted for an easy image. For me this kind of food still-life are quick and easy "like shelling peas". ;-)
Ha, ha I learned this definition just today, hope I used it right.
Better on black, if you have the time.

I love your food photography. I use to have an organic farm and shelling peas was one of my favorite task. I got to sit under the shade of big cotttonwood trees by the river and shell peas. It was a way for me to relax and still feel productive. Fav!

Like @moonmtn, I enjoy shelling peas. My grandparents had an enormous garden and I always got to shell peas on the back porch every summer. I am not sure if as many as need went into the bucket...I think probably too many went directly into my mouth! Your food images are always spectacular!

Mona, this is utterly spectacular. How did you do it? Did you place your peas on black plexiglass?

@jyokota This is all natural light and very simple. We have a big window lettling in warm light from the setting sun. A couple of month ago, I made a behind the scene shot,... how my food shots work, if you are interested. http://365project.org/mona65/2015-plan-b-alb/2016-08-30
