New Toy – Photographing Food

Conor ConeAfter much frustration with my digital camera, I took the plunge and dropped a bit of cash for a Leica. I was having trouble with the food shots, especially in low light. Rather than go for a huge SLR, I decided to stay compact but invest in something with a great lens.

With the help of a photographer friend, I chose the D-LUX 2 and ordered it from the UK.

Two days later it was here, and I’ve had a ball playing. After an ice cream bribe, I even got my nephew to pose!

I can’t wait to get it into the kitchen…

    I can only ever drool over the Leicas in Conn’s Cameras. I’ll add it to my list of eviable goods along with the espresso maker.

    Poverty sux.

    Keep up the hard work, pass your law exams, and soon you should be able to afford many of them! Good luck.
