Hot Pepper
Lens: DFA100mm Camera: k5iis Photo Location: A smoky living room ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/2s Aperture: F4 
Posted By: BrianR, 11-10-2017, 07:12 AM

One of the hot peppers we grew this year, a Trinidad moruga scorpion. I've already dried nearly a kilogram's worth, yielding just over a 100 g of dried powder, so I have enough to incapacitate myself several thousand times over and I could spare a few to some fire experiments.

This is a blend of 2 exposures, one for the fire and one for the flashes to light the pepper and background. It was just easier that way, increasing the exposure time started to make the flames too much of a blob and the flashes didn't go down low enough to work with the ambient (I didn't have enough ND filters on hand to help them along). A wire support holding the pepper from below was also cloned out.

Thank you! I'm still enjoying it, the dried powder these peppers made goes a looooong way.
