Peppers and a Pear

My idea with these yellow (actually, close to orange) peppers was to create a lattice composition on the light box. The lattice should be arranged so that it had a three-dimensional look. This is inherently non-trivial with a light box composition, because to take advantage of the back lighting one needs to keep the subject close to flat and two-dimensional. So I worked towards this effect by “hooking” the stems of the cut-out pepper slices through one another.

This single pear called out to me as an image worth creating on its own, with the symmetry along the vertical axis of the two seeds the primary driver of the composition.
