Peas are not quite in season yet, but they are starting to show up at local stores. Regardless they are fun to photograph.

Wow those peas just look beautiful! Amazing, Nancy. :)

I’m wondering, did you use HDR for those shots?

Thank you Tobias:)

What is HDR? Lol, sorry;) I did a quick Google search and it I understand it’s a photo editing software? If so, no I didn’t use that. I use Photoshop CS4, the effects are done with dodge and burning.

Beautiful peas shot. I love the first one. I don’t know how you call it, but love the effect around the peas. Very dramatic. If I take the same shot, it would be very boring pea shot. ;-) Gina is such a sweet person! Hehee very cute cookies!

Thank you Nami:) I don’t know what it’s called either, lol, but thanks. No it wouldn’t, your photography is beautiful!

I just adore Gina and she always makes me laugh:)

I still haven’t opened the box for lightroom, now you are making me want photoshop. I never knew peas could look that good. Saw your great guest post and I’m glad you enjoyed seeing your minions. Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
