Like all journeys this one has a beginning. This one started in Logan as I went to take pictures in honor of my one year anniversary of getting my Nikon D40. While I was there Belinda said you need to do a 365 challenge with me. I wanted to but was unsure. I took this picture of the sushi just in case I decided that I was going to go through with it.
I arranged the food and cleared the table of things I could see through the view finder, and snapped off a couple of shots. After adjusting the white balance I liked the color. I like the lines and and the angles. I wish the shadows weren’t so harsh. I Macgyvered a couple of things with this shot. I used a chopstick wrapper as a flash diffuser (to try and soften the shadows and add some fill) and used a napkin (clean of course) as a “gray” card to set the WB.
