My mother:I'll apologize to all of you out there ahead of time for what I'm about to announce, but I truly have the greatest mother in the world. Your mothers are a close second LOL!
I declare proudly that she's the greatest because last Christmas, my mother bought me an onyx Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (see below)...
...and this Christmas, she bought me a Canon XSi with a 50mm f/1.8 lens, and both items arrived at my doorstep the day before yesterday!!!! Words cannot even begin to describe how excited I am.
I thought that it would be easy to shoot from this camera on manual mode since that is what I use on my old camera, but I definitely need a lot more practice!
My old camera:I tend to personify inanimate objects; it's one of my many idiosyncrasies. So, I feel like my old camera is not feeling the love anymore now that I have this new camera.
Since my old camera has helped me produce more than decent photos that have been published on Foodgawker, Tastespotting, Photograzing, and Refrigerator Soup, it deserves a decent thanks and somewhat of a farewell.
I went from photos like the photos below of the focaccia bread that I took in my dark kitchen, which was either taken on my phone camera or my old camera.
Believe it or not, all I had to do was step outside on my patio to produce much better photos like the one below of this focaccia bread from the same recipe of the one above.
So, get ready to see better photos (hopefully) of delicious food. I already have photos of a meatball sub I made yesterday, but most of them were blurry, but I managed to produce a couple of decent ones. I just bought a tripod today to rectify those issues, though.
Thank you, mom!! I love you!
Thank you, old camera and Blackberry!
Thank you, Lord!!
Have a great day!
P.S. I received my new mixer yesterday, too!!! I will take photos of that once I get someone to help me take it out of the box haha.
