Sushi – Project 365: Day 102

by matt on June 1, 2010

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.
