Is this bento half dirt, or what? No, but a dirt bento sounds fun! I made this lunch for Ara to eat at home while I cleaned for my flute student.
There, my secret is out… I clean the house just before a student comes over.
Or before anyone for that matter.
Our house is USUALLY in a state of complete chaos.
Our bananas are starting to go all spotty so I made some devil-food pudding and stuck them in there. I added crushed up graham crackers (the idea was in my head from this-side-of-sanity). Ara was so excited about eating the pudding that she asked no less than 100,000,000,000 times if she had eaten enough noodles. I exaggerate, but only because I want you to feel my
pain excitment! The noodles are just noodles with a touch of butter. I added carrots and sliced grape tomato’s.
The part I am really focusing on (pun intended lol) is the photo. My home-made light box is built (taped) and ready to go, but it seems I need to add more lights. I only have one that my sister lent me so it seems a trip to a hardware store is in order. So this photo was taken with the little bit of natural light I could grab from the rainy sky and my one light. I had to compensate for the yellow hue of the light in photoshop. I think I can change a setting on my camera for that next time. I definitely like the photos taken with pure natural light better, here’s to hoping I can come close to duplicating that with the lights.
Well I have to run, I am off to a Flute Olympics!
