It’s funny but this exercise I’m doing this month makes me realize that really my steady selling images mostly fall into two categories: models with strong expressions or doing something in context or food photographs. This, along with the baklava image, is again one of my oldest shots. I didn’t have any lights at that time, so this image of traditional Japanese seaweed (wakame) salad was shot next to a window with the setting sun shining through diaphanous curtains for soft diffusion. It didn’t need much else. Also interesting is the fact that for the first time I used an action (picking up the good stuff with metal chopsticks) in the shot. It has been selling steadily for two years now.
