Onions (during shibari)

Yesterday we ventured below into Alte Kantine for another Sunday workshop. More self-suspension, excessive sugar, soup, and other things beginning with ‘s’. No photos of people tied up and hanging.

Sometimes I find the combination of light, size of the room, and my camera makes for difficulty in photographing anything. I like finding compositions that include several people and are somewhat tableau-like, but the background in the space is not so conducive to this, nor the lighting, nor that my camera goes all crazy-fisheye when I shoot without any zoom like this. All things that could be remedied with a little creativity (or by throwing euros at something).

Instead I decided to photograph some onions, ginger, either sprouting or withering on a very well-lit shelf at the counter. One thing my camera does very well is close-up under good light. Perhaps I shall photograph spring for a bit…
