Food is always a great object to photograph that few can resist, whether photographing or eating. Photos of food taken using natural light look best to me. In this case, the photo was taken under natural light with a little reflection from white paper (in this case, a reflex silver surface was additionally used).
I made this image using horizontal tripod arm and wooden plank I bought in a local store at the time that I lived in Luxembourg. The setting is simple, main dish with a dessert with only a window light from the left and the white reflection board from the right. I also used tripod weight bag and wireless trigger for Canon. Yes, it was my vegetarian lunch. :)
This photograph was an exercise in texture. However I couldn’t resist adding a little action. Sushi is a dish best served shared and I wanted to capture that pleasure. There is something so elegant and delicate about using chopsticks. It really is an art form. But the same can be said about making sushi. Combining both movements allows for a more fuller image of the sushi eating experience. The complexity is in the dish itself which means keeping the background and props to an absolute minimum.
