Black rice (also known as purple rice or forbidden rice) is a range of rice types of the species Oryza sativa L., some of which are glutinous rice. Varieties include Indonesian black rice and Thai jasmine black rice. Black rice is high in nutritional value and is a source of iron, vitamin E, and antioxidants (more than in blueberries). The bran hull (outermost layer) of black rice contains one of the highest levels of anthocyanin antioxidants found in food. The grain has a similar amount of fiber to brown rice and, like brown rice, has a mild, nutty taste.
Black rice has a deep black color and usually turns deep purple when cooked. Its dark purple color is primarily due to its anthocyanin content, which is higher by weight than that of other colored grains.It is suitable for making porridge, dessert, traditional Chinese black rice cake, bread, and noodles.
As a photographer i always wanted to explore various techniques and types of photography. One such technique that has always inspired me a lot is monochrome. Monochrome photography is photography where the image produced has a single hue, rather than recording the colors of the object that was photographed. It includes all forms of black-and-white photography, which produce images containing tones of grey ranging from black to white. Other hues besides grey, such as sepia, cyan or brown can also be used in monochrome photography.Monochrome photography is mostly used for artistic reasons in the contemporary world.
This was my first ever try with monochrome , would love to get feed backs from everyone and critic or suggestions are highly appreciated.
