I play with my food. Is that really so wrong?
Okay, so it seems as if I didn’t get raptured, but you know what did? My camera. This is the first in a series of blog posts about my nearly-dead camera. Included in this series will be images that I haven’t posted to flickr. Don’t get all excited; they’re worse than my other shots. That’s why they didn’t even make the flickr cut.
It’s reading week, so instead of taking up your precious reading time, I’m going to post some pictures. I was up at Hart House Farm at the end of January for a retreat with Hot Yam! and again this past weekend for the Food-In Conference, so I thought I’d share a few pictures (click to enlarge) from the Hot Yam! retreat in today’s post and some pictures from the Food-In at a later date. More after the jump.
I don’t know how many of you own a digital camera, but they sure seem to come with a lot of “scene modes” nowadays. You know the ones: portrait, dusk, backlit, night, sports, landscape, macro, indoor/party, fireworks, snow, beach… but what if I want a night photo of fireworks at dusk on a beach such as seen in the Beaches in Toronto on Canada Day (assuming nobody is holding a strike)? Okay, Mr. Smartypants, so the answer is you probably want “fireworks” mode, but while most people may find the decisions made by the fully automatic settings to be sufficient, sometimes additional human intelligence is required.
