While it’s true that I have a perfectly good camera already (actually a few of them), I decided to upgrade. I still had Christmas money that I never spent and I’ve been saving for awhile for this purchase. Good thing because it was a big one! I bought a Nikon D90 and as you can see, it’s quite a bit bigger in size than my Nikon D40. I’m still getting used to the size and the settings. I feel much more comfortable right now with my old camera (which is going to be passed on to my daughter who is very interested in photography). The Nikon D40 is a great camera and I’m glad I started my dslr learning with that one.
It came a week ago (I ordered it from amazon), but I’ve been so busy and intimidated that I didn’t open it until yesterday. I’m funny like that for some reason. I’ll buy new clothes and they sit in my closet with the tags on them for a few days before I ever wear them. It’s like I have to let them “cure” or something. I see no logical explanation for this so I won’t even attempt to come up with one. LOL!
I bought some yummy turnovers just for the occasion. Food week is messing with me, I’ve been kind of naughty, all in the name of photography assignments!
See that lemon filling oozing out? Are you hating me now? Sorry to do this to you, but I love to get up close and personal with my treats.
I wish I could tell you that it was awful… sorry again!
I decided that the box would count as my “prop” for the assignment on Katrina’s list this week (see below). For the next challenge, I really was drawing a blank on how to photograph food near it’s source. I’m in Utah, and it’s still snowing in the mountains and raining in the valley. I haven’t been able to plant anything in my new garden yet, and I certainly don’t have anything to harvest. I liked Katrina’s idea about using the light in the refrigerator so I decided to take that approach.
This is my daughter’s collection of assorted spicy jellies and spreads. It sort of makes us all crazy because there are always jars of sticky stuff around the place. We don’t know where she gets it from since none of us are really into the stuff. Perhaps it’s because my parents moved to New Mexico 7 years ago? They are into the spicy things now as well.
I guess it would have been much better if I could have photographed one of the jars while standing in a field of jalapeño peppers. LOL! For now, this is the source of the jelly concoctions – our refrigerator.
I’ve had such a good time during food week! I’ve taken a picture for every challenge, except the metal one – that will be my weekend assignment. It’s been especially fun because I’ve eaten all my subjects!
