Back in September: Taking photos of food is great because it is very much a challenge. You have to be ready as food deteriorates very quickly … looses temperature, changes shape, colour etc.

Lighting plays an important part and its best to use as little as possible introduced lighting.
Always have a big glass of water with you when doing food photography. Why? Well when you get the hungers and you want to demolish the meal … have a glass of water instead … or you’ll end up the size of a bus.

I make a big thing out of my birthday … no one else is going to!
I had a great bfast with Sue at Bannisters(, drove to Sydney and caught up with Amanda (daughter)( and my parents (www.idonthave a for a quick Pie from WTTC( for lunch, moved on into Sydney town for a quick meeting, went to David Jones and got a food slicer on special and had a glass of white with an antipasta plate courtesy of WTTC, moved on to Double Bay to Thai Terrific for Dinner with son Ben, daughter Amanda and surfer Anthony. What a great day. Thanks to all.
Joined facebook today and that just looks like a big bowl of facial mush. It feels like I just stumbled upon a ruin of a church and all the departed souls are screaching from the very high delaminating rafters ‘Be my friend!’ … orchestrated by the big pooha of FB who is just doing his best to intermingle tribes.
Looks like some serious time management ahead
Making a nice film at the moment … more on that soon.
