I’m a huge fan of sushi, so when a local asian restaurant commissioned me to photograph some of their dishes for an advertising campaign, I jumped at the opportunity. Standing with the chef while he prepared the dish, we used the precise fish eggs to keep the color palette simple and complimentary. The light green of the wasabi and pinkish hues of the salmon I believe worked well together and the red fish-eggs in the lemon was the chef’s idea which I also believe worked well.
