One of our newest club members is submitting this image. As you probably previously read, Merrie had inherited an Olympus camera from her dad and needed some help in learning some of the basics, so we met for a Vietnamese lunch at Yogurt Wasted in Rowlett and we reviewed her “destruction” book and had a crash course to get her started. As our lunch was served, she decided to get her food photo for September.
And this is what Merrie says… “I chose this one because although there is some glare in it, the soup looks like you could just eat it. I liked that it showed the bubbles too. I didn’t notice that so much in the restaurant but I think it shows that the soup is still hot and ready to eat. Most of the ones with the chopsticks came out with a lot of glare on the chopsticks, which probably is not a bad thing as it looked natural.”
It was a learning curve for both of us when I discovered Merrie was shooting tiff images and after some reading we decided that for now she should be shooting jpegs, so this tiff image was changed to a jpeg image in photoshop.
We sat in the restaurant for almost five hours going through her equipment and reviewing some photographic basics. Thank you Tim, for letting the “crazy women” hang out!
