Get the interview about Morely Baer from Lenswork. His wife Francis talks about Morely and Edward Weston whom she worked for. She talks about the pepper in that interview. Edward was a person that would if he didn't like the results would keep shooting until he did get it right. This not from a book written by someone else, but the person who cleaned and cooked for him. As they say direct from the actual horses mouth.
