The texture of life: rice, spice, coffee
(I neither cropped, nor augmented these pics. These are all hand held shots.)
I’ve been teaching myself macro photography and these are from my first shoot. I enjoy taking pictures of food to a point, but macro is satisfying. It might not appear so, but it took a few hours to take these shots. Like cooking, it’s a process and I really enjoyed working it out.
I was really curious to see the texture in a mustard seed, or nutmeg, fenugreek, cinnamon, cardamon. It was like traveling to another planet and when I work out how to get in closer that’s how I plan to approach it.
The colors and shadows were interesting, too. To get better at macro I’ll need to learn how to layer the focal planes.
Watch this space. I will get into my rhythm. 🙂
