Reagan has been on a huge blueberry kick. She absolutely loves them and will eat an entire pint in one sitting if we let her. We just cannot keep enough on hand. If it's not blueberries, then it is red raspberries. She is a berry lovin' girl:) Whatever it happens to be though, I am a little over the top when it comes to washing it. I worry about things that may have been sprayed on the berries while they were growing, so they hit the sink for a very good "shower" before they ever make in into Reagan's bowl.
So the other morning I was getting Reagan her breakfast and the two containers of blueberries were in the bottom of the sink. The water cascading down on them caught my eye. I ran to my office and grabbed my camera.
I love to photograph food and flowers, but when you add some water, it just adds an extra element of fun!
I usually take my food shots on the kitchen table where I get a lot of natural light. These shots were taken in or around my sink where it is not nearly as light. In fact, there was very little light at all.
Remember my new friend Kurt from Cardinal Camera?
Well, he recently worked some serious magic and got me into the new Canon 5d Mark iii and this week I had a little fun testing the limits of this camera! I am still not quite ready to give a full report and I have only scratched the surface of what this camera can do, but I will say this...... The 61 point focus system is nothing like I have ever experienced. It is as FAST as can be, and if that is not enough to make you swoon...... the ISO capabilities on this camera are through the roof. It was definitely made to work flawlessly in low light conditions.
For those that are photography buffs, would you believe that the first two photos in today's post were taken at ISO 8000 and the third and fourth photos were taken at ISO 5000? YES, they were....and I could hardly believe my eyes!!
Even with the high ISO settings, the grain and noise is minimal or nonexistent!
I know a few of you mentioned wanting to upgrade to this camera should you be the lucky recipient of the $1000 Cardinal Camera Gift Card giveaway. Trust me when I say, you will not be disappointed and you will never want to put this camera down. It is my new baby and it will go everywhere I go:)
Speaking of Cardinal Camera and the ever so generous Kurt, Stay tuned...... the Gift Card winner will be announced bright and early tomorrow morning!!
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend....TGIF!
