"In the still water of the fountains one saw the splash of human faces, ignited by these gold and scarlet stars as they rose hissing into heaven like thirsty swans." from Justine by Lawrence Durrell.

Sometimes for lunch I'll make these little eight inch personal pizzas with some goodies on top. Goes great with chilled ice tea.

I buy those ready made pizza crusts by Mama Mary's. Slather on some oil and pizza sauce, top with mushrooms, red onions, kalamata olives, zucchini, a couple of thin slices of ham and bada bing!
Well, before the bada bing, it goes in the 425 oven for 8 minutes.

Photo taken with the Nikon D7000 with the 50mm lens in manual mode at f.56, ISO 100, ss 1/125th.

Lighting is an Alien Bee 800 fired into a silver umbrella just left of frame set to 1/8th power. SB600 flash on a shoot through umbrella from the right set to 1/16th +7 power. And an uncorrected ARRI fresnel warming up the left side from about 7 to 12 o'clock. Auto white balance.

And my usual method of using a tripod and mirror-up-shutter-trip with a cable. Other than a little sharpening in post pretty much from camera.

Thanks for stopping by.
