Dinner Through Her Lens

Monday, December 19, 2011

What if I just focus on cooking and someone else just shoots away merrily ?

I find it hard to focus on cooking and the food at the same time, if you know what I mean. It is a constant challenge.

My niece Japhia was with us when I cooked a family dinner tonight. She was enjoying my 600D.

As you can see, she was snapping away as the plates were prepared before the diners got to them.

I like that. I just focus on the pan and she on the lens.

She did not have much time and I was surprised at what my young niece came up with.

Apart from admiring some of her work, perhaps you can be inspired as you think of your coming Christmas or New Year dinner.
