I played with DSLR last weekend and here is what I learned. DSLR is pretty complicated thing. Mine is used Nikon D80 with Nikkor 18-105 ED lens. That lens is good overall lens, but it’s not great for food photography. I thought that if I put my camera on a tripod and use timer, picture won’t be blurry and I’ll be able to set the settings to receive most light possible and give me great pictures.
So, I was playing with aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings. But Nikon D80 was pretty stubborn. When I wanted to set all 3 settings for best food photography and get the most light in the camera, D80 didn’t cooperated. It throw me r09 errors when it couldn’t focus. When I switched to automatic settings, then it made pictures, but settings were not really letting all the light in. So, I’m somehow disapointed and I decided to buy a new prime lens, probably Nikon 50mm, 1.8. I’ll let you know how it goes with that lens once I buy it. In the mean time you can check the pictures with Nikkor 18-105 ED lens:
And here is my favourite weight loss salad. Fresh yogurt cheese mixed with some olive oil, lemon, thinned with some yogurt (1/2 cup) and then mixed with spinach. It made thick salad full of fiber and proteins and low on fat and carbs.
- 1/2 cup of spinach
- Yogurt dressing (Yogurt, olive oil, salt and lemon)
- Cayenne pepper (optional)
- Few sprigs of cilantro (optional)
- 2 spring (green) onions
- 5 oz. low fat yogurt cheese
- Pour yogurt dressing into the salad bowl. Add farmers’ cheese and mix thoroughly. Cut spring onions in small pieces and add to the cheese mixture and mix. Add spinach and mix thoroughly. Add spices (optional).
