Too Fast Too Furious..

Hey peeps.. after 3hrs of driving we got into KL safely this afternoon.. alhamdullilah.. it was a smooth ride.. no.. "Encik ur driving far too fast.. do u know the speed limit here on this highway?".. ahakss ur asking a F1 racer what the speed limit is on ur highway?? u got to be kidding.. i think i must hv nagged like a zillion times to hb on his driving (hes a fast driver but not reckless and reacts very quickly) .. does he listen?? not that i know off.. he however has reduced fm driving 170+km to 140km per hr tho.. yikes! Anyway, as soon as we checked in.. hb went for his first appt.. Sonia took her afternoon nap and so did her mama for a change..

I like it here.. in fact i like it whenever i get the chance to travel with him.. it makes me stop fm doing stuff.. i watch telly which i hardly do at home.. i eat a lot more which i dont like but had to hahaha.. i get to hang out with Sonia 95% of my time here and i get to take a nap without feeling guilty.. i think it has alot got to do with my mind set.. shrug

So ok since i got a few emails asking me to show how i take my food pics.. this is it..I dont use special apparel like tripod or spotlights. All pictures are taken in natural lighting mostly early in the morning ~8am or later in the evening around 5:30pm. At this time the sun is not too bright and sets the "mood lighting". If it is still a bit too bright I draw my day curtains. On the camera I set it to Auto (P) mode... I use single focusing point all the time in my pics.. Last but not least my camera: Canon EOS 500D, Lens: EF50mm f/1.8




Sometimes i will tilt my board forwards...


....... sometimes backwards... sometimes no board at all hehehe


The end product...


Few of my props used in my photoshoot.. ceeebahhh photoshots sehhh hahaha

Banyak bangat yg boleh diguna kan buat props... semua pun ibu Rima suka bangat hahaha

P is the mode where the camera will set all for you (shutter speed and aperture).
Av mode the camera sets shutter speed but you must set the aperture yourself. Aperture is for you to create blurry backgrounds for example. A higher number (turning the wheel to the right) will create a sharper background. Turning it to the left (lower number) will create a blurry background. But I don't need to do that since I use a macro lens. So if you want camera to take full control set to P.

Sue
No worries.. not much pun.. hehehe

Salam Rima, waaaah dapat new lessons mlm ni..bz sungguh, cadang masuk nak selongkar dapur Rima..tp baca bab ni dulu...mmg gambar2 Rima really admires me..akak guna 550D, tp x pandai sgt pun nak snap...selalu guna Manual mode then dengan mata yang rabun2 nih, duk adjust segala..kadang2 tgk kat screen pc baru perasan ada yg blur di tempat x sepatutnya..huhuuu..Kena try cara Rima la..set P and auto semua yaaa...adeeeiihhh

Rima said...

Alhamdullilah.. good to hear that... si suami ku ni ferasan macam racer.. actually kan dia bukan ape.. kat sg tak leh tunjuk skill.. kat malaysian road pulak nak tunjuk skill.. if we are in aust.. punya lah lembab dia drive cos he knows police sana suka sembunyi belakang pokok kahkahkah.. saman mahal weiii.. if kat europe.. dia bermaharajalela.. cos no speed limit

Rima said...

Ummi
I just use auto aje.. make sure pakai single focus so u can choose which spot u want it to focus.. cakap senang.. focus.. hold ur shutter and then tilt it up or down then click hehehe..
