Photo Post by Donna
I thought I knew what a shallot looked like. I've always liked the photo I took below showing shallots being diced. Then, I saw the shallots Michael brought home from the farmer's market last week. They were huge! I like photographing the natural design elements in nature, so when I saw one of these babies sliced open—I just had to capture the art work that mother nature had made. Macro photography is essential for a lot of food photography because it allows you to get the texture details of small things and eliminate unimportant backgrounds. Sometimes, that's all we need to see.
