Tropical Steamer

The weather has been so warm these past few days that it put me in the mood for a tropical motif for today’s photo. So I set up my bamboo steamer basket (one of my favorite food props) on a batik sarong with a jungle-green backdrop.

Using an f-stop of 13.0 and ISO set at 800, I was able to get a clearly focused image that required only a little digital lighting adjustment and the usual cropping for balance.

…And this concludes my self-taught digital SLR tutorial.
