I was shopping at a local farmers’ market and picked up a few heads of garlic. While waiting to purchase the garlic, I placed them on a black shelf near the cash register. The sunlight from behind the cashier spilled over to the garlic, highlighting their thin translucent layers. And, of course, I immediately wondered if I could duplicate that look on black glass. Would the reflective glass give the garlic layers an iridescent quality? Inspired by that thought, I made three trips to stores to purchase black glass. After never finding it in stock, I gave up. To get the shot before the garlic died, I used black foam core and a clear piece of Plexiglass and accomplished the same look.
