I took inspiration from 477972.jpg by 31.gif aKiwi .

I placed the pepper on a steel pin supported on a black foam board. The incense stick was tied to the steel pin. I placed the SB800 to the right of the camera and placed a reflector on the left side.

Thanks for the ribbon!!! Thanks for all the nice comments too!
