Food Photography Journey

Okay-lah, so I have to admit that my first installment of Food Photography Tips was crap :P So let’s change it to my Food Photography Journey instead aye? During most of my makan-makan outing with da gang, I’ve observed incidents by the group members while taking photographs that sometimes tickles me.

Just the other day during one of our makan trip, when we were nicely seated, the Chef teased, “How come all the diners come with BIG guns today?” I quickly hide my ‘gun’ as mine is just a small ciku :(

Tonight, as I was looking through my picture folders, I saw this particular picture…

I wish upon a shining star…

Choi Yen must have had the same wish as I do, “All I want for Christmas is a BIG, BIG DSLR!” But then again she HAS a BIG, BIG camera and that leaves only ME with the small, small thingy >_<

Now, I think I’ll just let this page open and hopes Darling will bump into it and ‘accidentally’ read this so that he knows what to get me for my birthday this year! :D Psst Darling, in case u forget, my birthday is like after Christmas before the New Year okay? :P

    Hehe, I have a section on my blog called Foodtography, it's a combination of the two words that you used. I've seen some blogs classify them as Foodnography, which is rather interesting too :)
