photography is part of how i earn a living....glad you like the snaps pac...the camera i use at home & for holiday snaps is a very old,cheap & cheerful olympus fe-230....only 7 megapix,but olympus have good lenses.most camera's on mobile(cell)phones have higher res these days.anyone can take a good pic with just about any camera or phone etc.it's more about the lighting,flash setting & angle than the actual camera a lot of the time imho.i have a high wattage non flicker flourescent above my work top & hob plates as well as a 150watt centre light so i knock the flash off,set the camera to super macro,knock off the zoom & move the camera until the shot is framed how i want it.that way you avoid the flash bouncing off wet surfaces & white ingredients don't flare out.i do use the flash & zoom in from a distance if i'm snapping frying/boiling/steaming...the flash cuts through the steam so you can see the food...same priciple as fog lights on your car.so that's 'ow 'harry does it,it's a lot easier than people make out!

Tuesday Dinner the 7th

Buongiorno, Good Morning,

Due to the final reforming of our kitchen, we decided to have a light bite in the historical Port ... We had:

a bottle of Prosecco Sparkling Rosť Wine

Calamari with a drizzle of lemon

A Panzanella Salad to share ( it was huge ) = a crouton bread salad with anchovies, tomato, black olives ... Similar to Caesar Salad ...

Kind regards and Have a lovely August,
Margaux.
