My 100th post!!! woohoo! I cant believe that I've been posting here since 2006. :D

This is another one taken from this cookbook project I was commissioned for. These are Japanese dishes called salmon balls and California maki. The lighting here are pretty much the same from my previous post. I used again my nifty-fifty here. The cheapest yet sharpest lens in my bag.

Congratulations on #100! Very nice image - I'm always impressed by a skillful food photo because it's not easy to get these right. Beautiful sharp detail with nice natural looking tones. I love the artistic slight tilt and subtle lighting. Well done.

Hola Dennis.
Una apetitosa y colorida imagen.
Buena macro, gran nitidez.
