the art of the s’more

So a lady friend of ours invite my wife and I over for pizza and s’mores a few weeks ago (thank you note late but currently in the mail).
As you might know from my photos I tend to take a lot of food shots. Some have even called my fascinations with food phonographic. But if you think about it we all need to eat and part of the experience is the delight in the presentation. If it looks good and smells good then it tastes even better. I hope that you enjoy my food photos. I like the photos, but the food is even better to eat. Take this one for example. The classic s’more made even better with the addition of two fresh raspberries. It was take at night by the fire using my trusty Cannon PowerShot SD 800 IS with the ISO set to high and no flash. I love the almost translucen quality of the raspberries and the tiny drip of warm marshmallow. It makes me want another one right now.
The shot came out great not because of my steady hands but rather the Image Stabilization technology built into the camera. When we were looking to buy a camera almost two years ago I asked Mr. TinyScreenfuls his advice on a great camera. With one smooth motion he pulled out his SD800 IS and said that this was the BEST camera. I’ve had a great experience taking the photos and I hope that you’ve enjoyed looking at them.
