(Crappy) Phone Food Photography
I thought it's the photographer, not the camera that makes good photographs.
Obviously, I thought a little bit too highly of myself ^_^'
So, when I went to this fantastic food-bloggers-slash-good-funny-and-nice-people dinner, hosted by Hong Kong's fabbest (is that a word?) couple, Tom & Jen, sans any of my camera, I thought I'd still be able to do Jen's delicious food some justice with my humble ol' iPhone 3Gs.
I couldn't be more wrong.
I got a little cocky, thinking...oh, I'll do a tutorial post on how to take delish looking food photos just using iPhone.
Yah, yah, that didn't go so well. The pics I took were so crappy, no amount of editing could salvage them.
So here we go, I'll just share.
So, while looking at these pics, please bear in mind that the food was actually 1,387,934.487.5 times more delicious than it looks here.
Japanese beverages brought by lovely e*ting
Jap apple juice!
Japanese kiddy beers...and gastronomous anonymous was taking their pictures using her iPhone4 (better than mine!)
They look so cute! I just had to hipstamatic them! They taste like....sweet soda ;)
Chinese preserved plum brought by @lapetitcreme
Roast chicken, yum! Mexican rice and black beans, yum yum! Corn with chipotle sauce and scallion, yum yum yum!
Thanks again for a smashing night, T&J!
PS. These crappy pictures were taken using iPhone3Gs, mostly with hipstamatic app, desperately photoshopped :)
PPS. How could I forget a fellow iPhone 3Gs photo taker, you know the Jason!
