083/365 - Mustard Seeds

Time for another entry in my spice series: this time, it’s wee little mustard seeds, both brown and yellow. The wooden measure just had a nice complementary color; it's actually stained brownish from being used to measure out coffee beans for the last 15 years or so, but I thought fit well with these seeds. Managed to capture a good amount of detail on the brown seed, if you want to have a look at the full-rez version.


Light is from camera right; a single CFL in a reflector, with a metal sheet pan camera left as a bounce to fill in the shadows a bit.


Nikon D7000 w/Nikkor 18-200mm @ 62mm + 12mm macro extension tube, 1/2s @ ƒ/16, ISO100.
