I will get out and about with my camera again soon, but in the meantime I thought the pumpkin soup I made for lunch today would make an interesting first foray into a bit of food photography. I’m still having problems getting the lighting quite right – the light source for this picture was coming from above, to the right, so the right hand side of the picture is a bit more exposed than the other. Ideally I’d have nice even light from both sides… But other than this, I’m quite pleased with this one. For anyone interested I used a Nigel Slater squash soup recipe from his Dish of the Day programme. Only, you’ll notice, I didn’t bother with the crisps. It’s a very tasty recipe though. Yum!
Taken with my Olympus Pen EP-1. Setting: Aperture Priority. Aperture: f/5; Shutter: 1/6; ISO 400. Overhead lighting.
