Sushi – Project 365: Day 102

Sushi Held By ChopsticksIt was home made sushi for dinner tonight.  I’m not really up on sushi and all the different names and types.  I would guess that tonight we made a bastardized Makizushi or Makimono.  Our filling was shrimp, cucumber and cream cheese all wrapped up in rice and nori (edible seaweed).  My wife also made what was probably a form of Uramaki which differs from the Makimono in that the rice is on the outside and the nori on the inside.  I welcome correction if I am wrong here.

I don’t have a setup shot for this photo.  I’ll be the first to admit that things were a little hectic this evening and frankly I didn’t have the time to produce something.  But the lighting was very simple so I will briefly describe what I used.

The background is a bamboo mat that is used for rolling the sushi.  I taped this on a cardboard box.  Then I had my wife hold a piece of the sushi that she made with the chopsticks a few inches out from the background.  I didn’t want the sushi to be too close to the background to avoid shadows.  The lighting is from a single Canon 580EXII with a white shoot through umbrella.  I told you it was a simple setup.
