I took this picture last year of our Amarillo carrots. I don’t know how other photographers go about their day (probably not the way I do), but when I have to take a picture — especially a veggie one for our markets — I have no clue whether it will turn out, because in all honesty, I don’t know what I’m doing. I know enough (not direct sunlight, etc) to be aware of the possibilities of achieving a good shot, but getting that shot is another matter entirely.
Having said all of that, I’m exceptionally pleased with how this photo shoot turned out. I love how bright the yellow shines against the dark background and how the natural, earthy tones dominate.
A note on Amarillo carrots: They are very sweet and they grow quickly. Because of this fast growing pace, they are perfect for that early carrot crop, but not so good later in the season. The longer they stay in the ground, the more they tend to split, crack and rot.
