The Lemon Juice Droplets in This Photo Are Not Photoshopped

While photographing Excapade Sushi’s new Japanese cuisine menu, I saw an opportunity to get creative with something as mundane as squeezing lemon juice onto a serving of salmon sashimi. I have done a number of similar shots successfully before but this one raised the bar with the highest number of droplets in one squeeze. Other than a Levels adjustment to brighten the image and a dose of sharpening, the image is untouched — I love food photography.

Equipment used: Canon EOS 5D Mark II, EF 100mm f/2.8 L IS Macro lens, Speedlite 580EX strobes

The same picture up close and sensational — a bit of timely luck let me freeze these droplets in the most elegant way I can imagine.
