Photos by MJ Klein
This week was fun because I’ve been testing out the new camera. I don’t quite have things tweaked just the way I want them, but I’m getting close. Let’s take a look at some food we had this week, Nikon D7000 style!
Beef fried rice.
Clam soup with garlic.
Mountain pig meat.
Oyster & egg.
Deep fried oysters.
“A” vegetable (direct translation from Chinese).
The chef putting up some noodles for a takeout order.
The chefs hard at work.
Now, those photos were OK but I like the colors jacked up a bit more, like the rest of these:
Green beans with garlic (cold appetizer dish).
Hand made boiled dumplings.
Hot & sour soup – one of the best I’ve ever had.
Now, for some teppanyaki at a place we frequent:
Industry-standard corn soup.
Putting cabbage on the griddle. Notice the blue light. I’ve white balanced for the overhead illumination, but the lights outside the restaurant were shining on the griddle, and they look blue due to the white balancing. I think it looks cool, especially the reflections in the food (you’ll see that in the shot of the chicken cooking).
Adding a little water to the cabbage,
then it gets covered to cook for awhile.
The finished oyster dish. This was delicious!
Finished cabbage dish.
The chicken was diced and the heat turned down low.
What the menu calls “John Dory fish.” It was slightly crunchy.
The final chicken dish with fried garlic and pepper-salt.
We hope you’ve enjoyed these dishes along with us! The new D7000 has renewed my interest in photography again and I’m looking forward to bringing you more photos soon!
