    WOW, Paymaster. You must have heard the angles singing while eating that heavenly pile of burnt ends. If thta doesn't make your mouth water, you better check to see if you have a pulse. icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    Last night we had a friend join us for dinner, so I cleaned out the veggie drawer and made some Pasta Primavera. This is such an easy meal tha I'm surprised more people don't make it. I fried up a couple pieces of my homemade Italian sausage then chopped it small and threw that in as well. Believe it or not, I'm eating some of the leftovers for breakfast as I type this, and I have enough for lunch as well. icon_lol.gif

    Now I'm hungry! Beautiful photos, every one of them! BTW, I found the macro setting on my camera finally, so hopefully I can share here, too icon_biggrin.gif

    Paymaster, that meat looks fantastic! And by the way, us cooks NEVER admit to "burning" ... we say with a smile, "This is nicely caramelised!" icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    Joe, that spaghetti photo -- there are a few foodstuffs that mostly come out wonderful in a close-up, and spaghetti with colour in it is one of those! Love how those strands curl so elegantly!

    Tonight we had a picnic in April. Potato salad, baked beans and hand ground steak burgers.

    Those ribs are making my mouth water! Want some now!

    Here is my latest pic, still disappointed in the blurriness but I'm not giving up yet!

    Hi Pammy!

    The food looks very good. It's strange -- the right side of the plate and also the wooden background on the right seem to me to be in focus (not blurry). The blurriness is more to the left and front.

    I wonder ... maybe your camera (macro setting?) was too close to that part of the plate and could not focus.

    When that happens there should be some little warning sign on your camera's LED screen. On mine there appears this warning: AF!

    Yours might only show an exclamation mark. Make sure that you really do have the food in focus, that there is no warning that you are too close or the camera cannot focus properly.

    When I say that: you could also use a setting (depending on what your camera offers) where you set a large aperture, such as F4 or less. This will mean you could focus on ONE part of the food only, and the rest -- the background -- is out of focus or soft or blurry. That's perfectly fine, especially if you want to show off one scrumptious part of the food.

    A small aperture (for example F22) will give you greater depth-of-field, i.e. everything should be in focus, like when you take a landscape photo.

    It's all a matter of experimentation, and I'm still learning!

    Oh, great tips! My camera does show those signs, but as I have no idea what they meant I just ignore them, silly me! icon_redface.gif icon_redface.gif You're an angel, thank you! icon_biggrin.gif

    Pammyowl so glad you aren’t giving up as it sometimes feels like we all seem to learn from trial and error.

    Must say I love the colors and textures.

    My camera has a setting called scn when you set to that then a screen comes up with symbols for different settings one of which is a fork for food photos.

    So does mine, Deb, but the food setting was not a good one. I have many settings, so I will just have to play around. icon_biggrin.gif Right now it is on macro.

    I spent a lovely morning at the downtown market in Charleston, South Carolina, USA with my husband. Sometimes it is fun to be a local and rub shoulders with the tourists. Pictured are some of the area's famous sweetgrass baskets. These are finely crafted works of art. This craft is passed down from one generation to another. I actually purchased some of the beautiful salt from a spice shop. The spices were priced cheaper by the ounce than the local grocery stores. The chocolate shop was my favorite. I ate plenty of samples. It was a lovely shop.
