Photo Notes: Using a full frame digital camera EOS 5D Mark 3 with EF70-200 lens at f5.6 – using natural light coming in from large window and a white reflector to fill in the shadows.
My son Harrison as part of his school project had to practice cooking three dishes for his assessment and with the supervision of my wife, he not only cooked the tandoori chicken, he also baked the bread for the burger and the dressing to go with the chicken.
Photo Note: Taken with the EOS 7D and EF 35 f1.4 L with single speedlight 580EX2. The dish was photographed as it was served without any adjustment or styling for the photography. Burger was eaten within minutes of image taken!
Singapore has grown in international stature as a food haven. Many unique restaurants are courageously springing up all over the island and not long ago, about 20 friends met at the Xi Yan Restaurant. All of the dishes served that evening was outstanding but this dish deserved special mention. Food photography is the art of capturing the sensation of taste through the eyes. I wonder if you can taste the texture?
I am very fortunate to have a wife who is a wonderful cook and when she her creative juices come out she is able to whip up the best cakes and gourmet dishes – ever. Here is something she made just a day ago which just had to be photographed.

Singapore is a wonderful place for good quality seafood and of recent years, restaurants are developing new recipes to entice their regular customers to return. Longbeach has been in business for a long time and continue to move with the times. This set of images was taken at lunch time and all five dishes was very tasteful and truly enjoyable. The quality of service is outstanding as well with the senior waiter even deshelling the crab for us. The images here was taken with 5D2 and EF35mm L f1.4 together with remote speedlight.
