Macro Food Photos

We eat out from time to time and we take lots of food photos.  Often times we use the Lumix LX3 because it is small and is not very noticeable.  Lately I have taken my T1i with the EF-S 60mm lens out to take photos with and the results are not half bad.  If you are hungry, don’t look….

Firstly, we start with some Japanese cuisine.  Seared scallops with special special mayo sauce and eggplants on the side.

Chopped scallops sushi with tobiko and light mayo, crispy seaweed wrapped on the outside.

Fresh sliced pacific salmon sashimi.

Next we will have some Taiwanese snacks.

Deep fried spicy squid.

Deep fried spicy chicken nuggets.

Deep fried tofu with garlic and soy sauce.

Another angle of the deep fried chicken nugget with tofu in the background.

Close up of deep fried tofu.

An even closer examination of the the tofu with minced garlic on top.


Pan fried noodles with beef and satay source.

And of course, we cannot have Taiwanese food without having tea.  This is black tea with Logan and Ginger.

Steamy hot tea, now I am hungry ^^

Do you like looking at food blog posts? I hope it didn’t make you feel too hungry.

    Hmmm…. I haven’t had takoyaki in a while now. I used to have it at least once a month. Darn cravings… might I ask which Japanese restaurant this is?

      The Japanese food is from Isami Sushi on Kingsway and McKay Ave. The Taiwanese food is from Go Go Tea in Richmond. In case you wonder, the Takoyaki is from Go Go Tea. I am not a food critic but I like for the food of these two restaurants and we will go back for sure.

      hey k, you can use Macro lens for anything other objects outside of the macro range. It is like a normal lens for that focal length. Which one are you thinking of buying?

        Sigma 17-70mm f2.8-4.5 DC Macro HSM, or the Sigma 18-50mm f2.8 EX DC Macro HSM. Any advice you can give me? I have zero knowledge about lens. By the way I am using the Olympus e520 Camera.

          I’ve never used any Sigma lenses myself but I heard good things about them. I would try to find some reviews of the exact lens you are looking for and do some serious reading first. After, try to rent them from a local shop and try them for yourself. That way you are sure what you are investing into.

            wow I didn’t know I can rent the lens form the store, thanks for telling me this since I never seriously walk into the camera shop before.
