Photo365 - 13 - Chickpeas

13/01/2011 - 17:55
I love chickpeas...and as I've started to cook more this is one ingredient I'll be slipping into meals from time to time.

So today I'm cooking Moroccan Chicken which includes a cup (American recipe) of chickpeas

And my photo365 for today started out to be a head shot over a plate of chickpeas as a pattern shot. But I then started to play around with the angle and then introduced a colander and ended up with this shot.

I used a softbox as illumination and then increased contrast to darken the shadow areas and emphasise the chickpeas more.
