That new Nikon Z fc is pretty sweet, but the company has recently released something even sweeter. And I mean that quite literally. Nikon Museum in Tokyo has released a box of yokan candies in a special commemorative box, which I guess is the sweetest Nikon kit in the market.
I love photography, but I love chocolate just as much. Hell, I probably even love it more! And Ann Reardon of How to Cook That brought my two loves together. No, she didn’t take photos of chocolate – she made her own camera out of it. In the video above, she shows you how she did it. And if you’ve got some skill, you can even make one yourself.
One of the highlights of my Sunday is reading Jay Rayner’s restaurant review in The Observer. I have to say that the photography that illustrates the articles isn’t always fantastic, but that’s not what I’m interested in. In fact, I barely look at it. But Sunday 6 November’s review of Jaya in Llandudno, the photography generated quite a few reader comments. You see, the restaurant was outstanding, but because most of the food was brown, the photos didn’t do it any favours what so ever.
Brown food is notoriously difficult to photograph. It’s dull and comes across as unappetising. Consequently, many people recommend avoiding taking pictures of it at all. But, brown food is a reality and that means there will need to be photos of it. The good news is that all is not lost. It can be done, and done well.
The secret to photographing brown foods is very much in the styling. Yes, there are some photographic tips to be implemented, too, but before you get to your light and your lenses, it’s all about how the food is presented.
