In this post I want to write about my camera as it will be sent to Zorra of Kochtopf - 1x umrühren bitte, who organized a new food photography event called Food-o-grafie. The first edition is about camera, which I believe is one of the most important thing for foodie bloggers. Yup, recipe accompanies by a photograph, is really helpful.
I blogged my recipe since 2004 in my primary blog. At that time, I used my Sony Ericsson K700i and my BenQ DC C740 to photograph the foods I cooked. Back then, I knew nothing about food photography, I just captured my food without thinking about lighting, the rules of third, styling etc. The photo below was taken with my pocket digicam BenQ DC C740. Too bad, I didn't have a file of my food photos taken by SE K700i.
Ooopppsss! The theme is camera, not the lens :D
Back to the theme, as I said above, Canon EOS 400D is not enough for one who plans to be professional but perfect for one who chooses photography as a hobby or just uses it for photo blogging. Though this camera has a sensor cleaning, but still you have to take care of it, specially when photographing your food. Just make sure that your hand is clean before touching the camera. Unless you want it to be taken care by the service center like mine. Yup, mine is in there now since last week (and I lose my first client because of it).
Since Zorra asked for a photo for this event that could be either a new one or the old one from September archives. As my camera is still being serviced, I used the one from last month.
