New Gadget

I have whole lots of new gadget last week. Firstly, it was the onigiri mould and onigiri bento boxes that I just bought. To compliment to the onigiri, I bought a new plate just for photography sake. I know, this are all the wacky stuff a blogger did and I am one of them. Beside the new kitchen gadget, I bought myself two camera gadget too.

It was the Tamron AF 28-75mm f2.8 lens and Canon Speedlite 580 EX II external flash.

Just a week before my nephew’s wedding, I tested up the new gadget and of course that included my new kitchen gadget.

The flash was pointed upright at 180deg, 2.8f ISO400. Picture was a bit dark tho. I have the flash pointed about 45deg with the same camera setting. The outcome was:

Well, a little over exposed. The problem is, flash doesn’t work in macro and when you shoot in vertical, you should turn the flash to face upward and not side way. Those are the things to remember. Can remember ah???!!! So many things to remember now!!!! Don’t ask me to invest in flash memory $$$.

There are lots more to learn and explore with the new gadgets. Will see how it turns out during my Nephew’s wedding. On the other hand, of course the onigiri taste nice la. I can’t go wrong with my cooking.

Stay tune…

    Yeah, that’s true. I still haven’t even master my Nikon yet, and all the pictures I took, especially in low light, are not crisp clear. Very disappointing. Wanna ask for your advice – could putting a circular polarizer filter cause the not-clear pictures (eventhough I use tripod)? Wish I am with you now, so that you could show me the way! 😉

    The Queen says: Thru my understanding a ‘circular polarizer filter’ filters out ray as they are best used to photograph water to filter the reflection thus also not advising to use the CPR in low light. I could be wrong tho as I don’t use any filter except for UV filters.
