Food Photography – Food triptych at Pantry @ the Stables

 

 

This triptych was taken with EOS 5D mark 3 with 35mm f1.4 L lens. Using natural filtered light from a cloudy afternoon sky. Adjustments made are crop, saturation, light sharpening and resize. The more I use the 5D3 the more I enjoy using it. Somehow it seems to have improved the resolving power of the L lenses that I had not seen before.

Landscape photography – The Crescent Moon

The Crescent Moon

 

Tonight’s crescent moon was bright but with intervals of thick clouds covering it up. It looked wonderful so I used my EOS 7D, 100-400mm L with 1.4 teleconverter – shot manual focus and manual mode. At f11, 1/60 sec. The image you see is cropped from original image at 100%. No enlargement digitally. Sharpened a tad in photoshop.

While this image was created primarily for my watch blog, the photography involved is intricate macro photography to capture the highly reflective watch to show off its great details.


Food Photography – Sunday Lunch with an iPhone

Sunday Lunch

 

Normally Sunday lunch will be at a restaurant but this particular weekend past, my wife chose to stay home to whip this up. Not wanting to let this opportunity pass on capturing one of her great meals, I thought to give the iPhone at try to see whether it was able to capture the details of the food she prepared. Clearly it managed to do so and as a collage, this will help us remember a great meal together as a family.

Reputedly the hippiest location in Seoul, Myeong Dong features vehicle traffic free walking streets and avenues featuring hole in the wall restaurants and trinket shops to high street fashion. Friday afternoon crowd here makes this place the throbbing centre of the city of trendy fashionistas.


Architectural Photography – Junghakdong shrine

This small but impressive shrine just next to the Gwanghwamun square is a typical sample of old korean style roof designs found not just in the temples but palaces as well. In the background is the financial district of Seoul. Click on the image to view a higher resolution image to appreciate the intricate colouration of the roof structure.

Under the bridges at Cheonggyecheon Stream

During the evenings at the Cheonggyecheon stream, young couples and families sit by the banks to listen to the water fall and stream by.  Located at the heart of the city, this place of solace and calm provides a wonderful oasis in a sea of concrete.

Along the Cheonggyecheon Stream in the heart of Seoul, there was this lady who sat on her own on the steps – away from the huge numbers of young couples and young families.

Taking a stroll through the Deoksugung Palace grounds in Seoul, South Korea, I chanced upon this group of old men sharing a cup of java under a canopy of tall trees.
