No, not Ginger the exotic dancer. But just as good for your circulation!
My wife makes this green juice almost every morning at the studio and sometimes at home. We call it Nessy's Green Elixir. More on that recipe another day, another post. But she adds a huge chunk of ginger root and this picture is from one of those mornings. She was juicing the green stuff first while I was admiring her ginger, and taking pictures of course. No lighting setup, no adding or taking anything away, just what was there and the available light in our kitchen which was basically overhead lamps that hang high above the island. I usually shadow the light with what ever is around me, like a plate or a dish, a towel or just my hand , while I hold the the camera with the other hand, allowing some of the light to fall on the subject. Spontaneous lighting! Some times it's not about "adding" light but "subtracting" light. This picture is one of my recent favs, and will end up in my food portfolio.
Everyone loves this green juice, makes everyone healthy, happy, and provides great energy for our shoot. The guys in the studio say: "Green juice make me strong like bull!"
Perfect way to start the day.
