These don't last long at my house. The lighting was too harsh so I'm going to give this another try today. Too bad, I'll have to make more.

Vanessa,

This challenge is obviously a sweet deal for you. I noted the reflections and wondered if you might not want to try taking the shots using a soft non reflective backgound.

I got some one foot square pieces of felt of various colors (red, blue, green white, etc) from the hobby section of Sam's Club for about a buck each and use them occasionally for a background when I want something colorful that won't reflect back light too much.

Your addiction could get expensive with the price of strawberries this time of the year.

Aloha

Nice shots, Vanessa. I don't agree with Selvin's suggestion of felt as a background. It reflects too much light and is too coarse. In closeups or still lifes, the individual fibers show too much. I haven't tried velvet or crushed velvet but I suspect it would work much better. However, it is expensive.
