To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 199 - Macro Week - Rum Cake

A colleague brought in some rum cake that he had baked.  Being German, he's a fantastic baker, and this cake was fluffy and really moist as well.  We had pieces of this towards the end of the day, so it was a really great way to cap off the work week.

Fortunately, I had my camera with me today as I'd intended to go out during the lunch hour and do some texture photography.  But that didn't come to pass and I was getting a little restive about what to photograph today.  The opportunity to take a shot of the cake was too great to pass up and so I took a big bite off it, and got to work.  :)

I can't say the composition is the greatest, because I became a little conscious of my colleagues watching me as I took the shots.

90 mm, f/3.2, 1/15s, ISO 200, Aperture Priority, Custom WB
