........so does the produce on display for sale.

I like to bring my camera with me when I go shopping for produce. Just as the birds we see during the year change with the seasons so does the produce as it comes in from various parts of the country and the world.

I always like seeing the produce that signals spring, just like the birds. I wonder if the store thinks you are an inspector.:-)

I was only stoped by a store manager who asked why I was taking pictures. I told him he had very nice produce so he said o.k.

The big lcd screen on my TZ! makes it easy to snipe produce and keep moving.

Tip/ Don't stand in one place too long as it attracts attention.

Tip/ Keep you camera on macro and zoom to the wide side and you can shoot quick and the IS makes things easier too.

I have noticed at large outdoor produce stores that us big tarps for awnings you will in all likliness encounter a red overhead tarp over the tomato display (the ligt passing through the red tarp enhances the reds just as yellow tarp enhances bannanas. The produce vendors know how to enhance their wares and use the powers of subliminal suggestion.

I like to shoot in the stores also but here, and with my V-LUX 1,I don't stand a chance. I was able to take a few when I first got mycamera by explaining I was testing my white balance, but they watched me while I did it. I can walk into a store with it and get stopped.

DoN

A big black camera in front of a face standing still is like a horse hiding behind a some fallen apples. A small silver camera does not look too "pro" on a job. Shooting from the hip on the go with IS is the way to go. If mgmt. confronts you compliment their produce quality and display and offer a print. Pushing a cart with goods to be bought in it at times is like a "photo visa".

Keep trying
