i have really been into making sushi lately (cucumber, carrot, and avacado), so it naturally became a nice project for a strobist beginner. overall i think these are ok efforts, but my biggest frustration is that the rice is too washed out. tips for correcting this another time?
this frame used a black matte finished poster board as a sweep. i got the idea for this from the post on strobist about using a black tile semi-gloss tile. i did have troubles getting rid of unwanted reflections in some of the wider angle shots though, when using it as a sweep.
strobist data: homemade collasible macro studio. sb-600 fired at 1/16 from right hand side. white bounce angled 45 degrees from upper left. ISO 200, f 5.6, 1/400th sutter. The sb-600 was triggered with a PC cable. i am still waiting on my ebay triggers. (thanks for the reminder carlos)
