Trying to be a little less than literal. I finished reading this challenges rules and walked into my kitchen and saw a fresh batch of chillies that I'd hung to dry.

Rather than using ambient light or a flash I used an LED light to create an omni light close to the chillies giving them a harsh shadow adding to the shape.

I don't do a lot of lighting like this but I wanted to make the shadow a feature rather than exclude it all together.

Quite a solid shot. The lighting is quite incredible especially for no editing.
