These 3 pumpkins were a gift from a friend, destined to end up in our soup. But before their dreadful end, I reckon they deserved their 15 minutes of fame.

Shot with my Pentax K10D and trusty Pentax-A 1:1.7 50mm objective, using my very own painting with light technique, you can read more about the technique in this tutorial

  • I’m sure they will, but currently we are still working our way through another pumpkin (no 15 min of fame for him!)
