So, okay, I may have gone hog-crazy with the dodge and burn tool in the second photo but it’s, hey, an exciting learning exercise for me. I would have avoided all this work if I had taken the time to set a larger background for the pot of amazing lettuce. Instead I used a trifold pasteboard background that showed the folds since I had a wide-angle umbrella to filter the Lowel V light. The lettuce is from last fall’s planting. I nursed it on my south-facing window all winter and when I took it outside earlier this spring Ugly Duckling turned Swan!
