food photography lesson # 001

Never accept food photography projects from restaurant owners who are either

a] a model or
b] on a diet.

Seriously, you will regret that day.


On the other hand, here's a quick quote from a master photographer:

"The worst place the flash can be is usually atop the hot shoe." ~Jo Avila

Where are we going? i thought this whole concept has some direction. I thought we were going into one concept. Fortunately, I have my brother to back me up, I have a single direction in mind. I want to take great pictures. I want to capture moments. I want to imprison time in a frame but somehow, some people doesn't get me. Some people see the business in photography, I don't. I only see art. Business comes second.

the kit lens [18-55mm f3.5-5.6 in Asia & 17-85mm in Japan and the US] produces decent shots. although quite capable of covering good focal range, in some situations, it's capabilities falls short. meet my new object of desire, the Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG MACRO.

there are a lot of reviews about this particular type of glass and all seems positive enough. the $300 price tag really is worth it.
