365 ~ 106 ~ Stir Fry

While I won't pretend to know much about photography in general, I DO know that food seems to photograph best in natural light. I usually take food outside just out of direct sunlight to get a good shot. 

(here's an example from my Feb. 13th post)

However, it isn't usually sunny at dinnertime, and often I want photos of what I made.

Last night was a good example...  I made a beef stir fry.  This is an example of what a flash can do to an otherwise tasty looking dish...makes it look like dog food basically.  Ewwwww.

The light was pretty low in the dining room, but I took a shot anyway and worked with the exposure a bit on Picnik.


  1. On camera flash is tricky. I rarely use it! The third shot does look yummier than the second, but the first is my sweet favourite!

  2. So agree... but my lightscoop helps if I have to take one at night.

  3. Looks yummy and love the black plate!

  4. Oh yum I want stir fry now and cakes!

  5. Yep, the second shot of the stir fry looks much more tastier. Love the cupcakes.

  6. Oh yeah I so know the lack of light at dinner time! The outside shots are great :)
