Gotta give Santa a shout out for my new DSLR camera and the food shots that follow. I’ve learned a thing or two along the way. When I first got the camera, I only shot automatic, flash and all, because I had no clue how to do anything but. That didn’t stop me from snapping though. Here’s a look at our New Year’s Dinner. Cod cakes in tomato sauce from Ottolenghi’s Jerusalem.

Then I took an introductory digital photography workshop at BU’s Center for the Digital Arts and learned how to take pictures without the flash! I also learned a thing or two about the basics. Words like aperture, shutter, depth of field and international standardization organization are now in my vocabulary. On a lazy Sunday morning like today, I decided to put my newfound knowledge to the test with our buttermilk pancakes (and VT blueberry maple syrup from Spoon NYC!). Here are a couple of my favorite shots.
Look forward to snapping and sharing more!
