boy, oh boy.
do i have lots to show you.
i took these pictures with my dad’s dSLR.
(canon EOS 400D. i love it.)
i have three separate things to show you…
here’s a hint.
today i’ll be posting about what i ate:
oh, macarons, how dearly i love thee.
how cute thou art, it breaketh my heart
to see thee and thy wife,
attachéd together, bonded by a gooey
sweet, layer of filling.
see how beautifully thou art,
packagéd in an embroidered purple tube.
taketh thee off the delicate ribbon,
thou art one step closer to the delectables.
cracketh thee open the tube…
and behold, the beautiful sight.
let us take a closer look, shall we not?
let us puteth (pooteth! pooteth!) them on a
pure white square plate.
stacketh ’em up!
(have you noticed i’m getting tired
of SHAKESPEARE? god help me.)
puteth (pooteth! pooteth! sorry.) ’em in a flower.
flavours clockwise, starting from the yellow one:
actually, i don’t know the flavours.
there seems to have been some confusion over them
(my mom thought that there was orange,
raspberry, strawberry, caramel, pistachio, and the last one she forgot
but my sister says it was raspberry, orange blossom, lemon, pistachio,
something else, something else? i don’t know.)
anyway, here are the ones we sampled:
i am almost 100% certain that the flavours are
me and my mom each had half.
this is them, halfway through eating.
clearly, i need to work on my focussing skills.
oh, and i set the ISO to 100.
probably not such a good idea, since
the shutter speeds were around 1/9, 1/15.
apparently people can really only hold still
for 1/30 of a second.
i learned. i changed to ISO 400, eventually.
Have you ever had a macaron? or… What sort of food photography advice would you give?
