Photographing food by a Leica M is not easy.  Most of the M lenses are featured with the minimum focusing distance at 70cm.  This means they are not designed for close-up. The only exception is Macro-Elmar-M 90 mm f/4.  You need to use an adaptor to get as close as 40cm.

Preparing onigiri


So I did an attempt using my Summicron-M 50 mm f/2.0 to take some photos of onigiri made the other day. Onigiri is a Japanese term used to describe cooked rice formed into a triangle or oval shape and wrapped in nori.  You can simple call it rice ball or roll.

By doing some cropping on Adobe Lightroom, I eventually got some nice images.  Here are two of them.
