I can’t wait to buy my new 50mm lens. It has been no fun trying to do food photography with a mostly-broken focus. But it is also a good exercise in learning to make do with what I have, so I’m waiting patiently for when it’s my turn to splurge with the budget. Maybe my birthday?
Despite shoddy camera work, we have been making some great food around here since Nate got home. He made an oxtail stew the other night, and I dunno, I think it could have been close to the most YUMs I have ever uttered during a meal. Oh, and did I mention he served it with the world’s best mashed potatoes (homemade by yours truly) and crusty bread with butter? I’ll try to pester him into posting the recipe soon.
