For those looking to enjoy photography in the winter months without actually venturing into the cold, setting up a small indoor macro studio is a great idea (it doesn't take much room).
I photographed the inside of a red bell pepper this past winter using a macro lens. I fired a flash through the pepper's slightly transparent outer shell to give the inside an ominous, glowing look. The outer shell imparted the rich red color seen on the inside of the bell pepper. I used a red gel on a second flash raked across the top white area of the pepper to open up the shadows and match the color found on the inside.
