The Onion (92 of 365)

    Newer Older

    I love onions. I mean, how else can you cook anything interesting? It's one of those basic and essential ingredients in the kitchen.

    But the real motivation for this shot was that I finally went to Home Depot to get a black shinny tile. :)

    I know a little plain, but yesterday's shot was waaay too elaborate and I had to recover some time.

      Do it, do it! Don't know why it took me so long.
      Ok, I will.
      LOL! Yes, poor onion. But it had it's spot light, literally. And tomorrow, it will shine in some saffron rice. Yum!

      a white onion on black - I really like it! I've never really put any effort into shooting a black background. This inspires me to try...

      If I recall correctly, I did have some black/grey paper behind, but it looked grey to the naked eye. The key was to make sure the light didn't spill back to the background, then even a white wall would go black. Good luck!
