Russ,

I've had that same problem with shooting pictures of food in my kitchen. I force the flash to OFF, then just take the picture with the available light. If your camera is able, just slightly depress the button until a green frame shows up in the view box (it goes from red to green). This tells you the camera is in focus on what your are shooting. THEN depress the button the rest of the way and you should get a picture of your cinnamon rolls that look like this (no flash):



Hope this helps. Also, if you are in close on the object, switch over to the MACRO mode (should look like a little flower on the selector wheel) and try the shot that way.

Joe

I think you nailed it, Suzi, I guess I am a bit vain about things I cook. This is a little odd, since I don't really think of myself as a master of presentation, and plating for me actually just means putting things on the plate most of the time.

Thanks for the tips, Joe. I decided to try again, brought the remains of the rolls out into the sun to photograph.

After looking at them on the computer, I realized that some of the pics I took last night aren't so bad, so here's one of those too.

I made a Panini for the first time on Tuesday evening using the NYT bread with the Italian seasonings tossed in... to die for! I brushed Italian salad dressing on the inside surfaces of the bread, built the sammich with Genoa salami, Bavarian ham and fresh shredded mozzarella cheese, then brushed EVOO on the outside surfaces. About 10 minutes in the George Foreman grill and I was in fat city...literally!

I'm going to bake some cookies today. Haven't decided what kind yet though. I am also going to make some orange muffins as my oranges look a bit pathetic at the moment. I have a huge pot of soup on so there may even be a loaf of french bread to go with it done for supper tonight.
