    How about using toys as props, like chapteh(weighted shuttlecock) or Goli(marbles).

    Or maybe board games like the aeroplane chess

    Or maybe old postage stamps

    Full Breakfast
    Food for Thought (Botanic Garden)

    Sumptuous breakfast, but nothing to shout about for the taste dept.

    Taken indoor which resulted in fair bit of low light. That why some noise was seen in the photo.

    Good photo.
    I notice that you placed the some of the main ingredients in the background of the photo. They are slightly out of focus, probably due to depth of field. This should be so because the cooked mee sua is the main topic. The ingredients complete the story.

    Have you done any shots of satay?

    Hi Ryan thanks for dropping by. I using Canon 60D. For home cooked food where I have enough lighting & space I used 24-105mm 1/125 f4. If eating out mainly using 17-55 f2.8 to f4 depend on lighting condition.

    Creamy Bacon Ham Spaghetti

    Bought a new lamp to try out. Using natural light from the back, lamp on left side 45 degree down and a flash bounce off the ceiling.

    C&C welcome.

    I think the "out of focus" should be intentional.

    Thanks ntheni, nice photo, buddy !!

    for the 17-55, I assume you are using the 55 end to get the effect of blurring the background ?

    Just wondering, since you shoot so close, is there a need to use macro lens ?

    Thanks again
