Week 45, Day 318, March 11, 2010, The Old Recipe

This months photo challenge for our local photo club is "food".  This is not an area that I have a lot of interest in photographing, but I'm taking it as a challenge.  Here's my first attempt.  I think that stepping outside our comfort zone can teach us new things.  Perhaps this will be more fun than I thought.

I have a friend, Jen Yu, that takes incredible food photos. (as well as many other types)  Take a look at her blog

Lessons Learned:
  • I lens with a wide aperture seems to be a good tool when taking food photos.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/6 sec, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, tripod.

The composition is awesome, and I love how the lighting on the eggs turned out! Great job.

Okay - I want to know what the recipe is for as I can read the ingredients.

Great photo! I have tons of food photos but all with the old camera. Guess I better get moving on some with the new camera.
