    Most of my cooking is in the home icon_lol.gif so I suppose thats a good look for it....

    A good airshow, a good car show, a good cattle show... in fact any good show is worth getting out to... makes for a great playground with the camera... I'm finding having the camera with me makes me look at things in a different way and you can get enjoyment out of things that would otherwise be depressing.... a dark cloudy sky would normally be horrible and nasty, but when you have the camera its suddenly an oportunity to get a great moody photo....

    with the recent influx of steak on the forum.... got meet envy... had to cure the problem with a 14oz rump steak (pepper sauce, wedges, fried onions and watercress)

    inside lighting


    what was left of daylight outside (note the wooden table you see in a lot of my shots... same place as those shots but not in middle of the day this time.. taken about 7pm when its gone dark at 8pm)

    I'm a bit like that.. I like the colour of the pink meat on the inside one, but the detail is better on the outside... you can't win sometimes... but as an example of lighting it shows how wandering around gets different results... its not just a case of putting food on the plate in the corner of the kitchen, taking one shot and saying that will do... well not if you want to get some better shots...icon_smile.gif

    breakfast
    brown roll, bed of watercress and fresh cherry tomtoes, crispy bacon, poached egg and branston pickle icon_smile.gif

    outside, much lighter daylight than last night


    same butty inside where other shot last night was taken


    and then suddenly the sun streaked out from behind the clouds and put serious shadow into the picture


    surprising the difference it can make

    Tonights Tea (or maybe I should say tonights re-work of leftovers ?)

    would you believe leftover pepper sauce from yesterdays steak (homemade not packets !) some onion, peppers, green beans in the frying pan, add some boiled ham (packet opened for sandwiches other day and needed using up), then add the pepper sauce, water from the boiling pasta to thin it out, add some greated reggie cheese (reggiano parmigiano - parmesan is the french name for it) and why not throw some watercress in as it needed using up.... then add some spirali pasta (looks like macaroni thats been corkscrewed) toss together and serve...

    (remember to see larger click on the thumbnails and click again if needed)

    All shots taken with Fuji Film HS30EXR on "PRO PORTRAIT" Setting, gives that blurring effect to the edges, keeping your eye focused on the main attraction.

    Fry off the onion, peppers and (frozen) green beans

    then add some boiled ham (packet was open and needed using up)

    then add the leftover pepper sauce from yesterday (which has almost set in the fridge)

    thin it out with a little of the boiling water from the pasta

    add the grated cheese

    put in the cooked pasta

    throw in some chopped watercress (would have used parsley but the watercress was open and needed using up)

    toss together and serve (drag outside to take a photo lol)
    had a go with a very minimal setup

    and my usual close ups

    Gee, Steve!! icon_lol.gif

    I scrolled through all your delicious food photos!

    Reason I do not offer more comments is that (currently) we have problems with phone line speeds, and that we have broadband is a joke. There is a promise of improving lines, etc. etc. but this is Africa and you never know .... icon_mad.gif

    It's easier to simply scroll rather than try and answer every post. You have NO idea how much of my time is taken up by the bad connection while trying to be active on this site! icon_evil.gif

    do you have phone extensions all over the house ?..do you have filters plugged into them all ?.. are you connected via wireless ? have you tried changing the wireless channel ?... etc... icon_smile.gif

    would be nice to have a good connection...

    Good morning!

    Thanks for linking me at this site.

    I love all three photos, but I love most the third dramatic one with the shadow!

    The blur in the first two photos was made with the camera (the Fuji)?
    How does it work?

    No problem, glad to share everything that we can, thats what the forum is for icon_smile.gif

    The Fuji (HS30EXR) has a setting for doing "portraits" (ie pictures of peoples faces) it also has a setting called "pro-portrait" which will take 2 or 3 pictures in rapid fire, one will be a hard setting, one soft etc.. it then uses its very clever onboard brain to merge them together, keeping the main point of the subject in good clear focus and gently blurring away the rest. It doesn't just put a blurred ring around the middle of the picture though, because I've tried it with the camera sideways and it changes where it will blur out. Things like a line of trees down one side will be viewed as back ground and blurred a little etc.. The thing is it will do the affect very well on other close up shots like food and even things like the airshow photos that are a couple of pages back were using the setting ! Sometimes if it can't see enough difference between the foreground and background it will tell you it can't do the effect but will still take a good picture ! Its my favourite and most used mode on the camera now !.

    Steve you cut outs on the crumpet breakfast makes a really pretty presentation!

    Crumps are only sold a one store around my parts and they small and round about the size of a scone/biscuit.

    thanks for that....

    and as the crumpets needed using up..... this mornings breakfast

    Cheese, bacon and branston crumpet sandwiches !

    Well square crumpets just make you think you should do more with them. So slice through the middle, add cheese and branston pickle (a root veg and onion sweet chutney), then gently toast while frying off some bacon. Put the bacon in the sandwich and garnish with fried tomato...
