Okay Michelle, you really must include words along side of your pictures. Why? Because other wise, there just might be people whom have troubles correctly labeling a picture ... such as picture number two. I am quite certain, knowing you, that it is something wonderful to eat. However .... it possiblely could be interupted as something from one of your dogs .... o;-p
(Honest - I do NOT mean to insult you!!!!! !!!!! !!!!)

I liked last weeks picture of the red peppers better than this weeks yellow ones. hum mmmm

While I am totally uncertain what picture #4 is of, However I do know that I hope you have already shipped me my sample of it!!! o;-p

Your math page - are you figuring out how many cookies to bake?

The phone cord - I like Kat's comment about how soon people won't even reconize it. I still use that style in the kitchen - ever so much easier to hold under your chin!!!
For what it's worth - I use wet wipes on ours - occasionally - when I can not take it's condition any longer!

How are you feeling now?

Mrs. C.,

All these photos were taken with a Point and Shoot Camera, a Canon Powershot SX200 IS. I use my Point and Shoot Camera quite a bit for my food photography. I have not quite mastered my more expensive Nikon D40 yet.

But really your lighting is more important then the camera. If you have good lighting, you will have no problem getting a good photo. You might want to look into buying 2 soft box continuous lights on 6' poles. They are light weight and you can move them around easily, for low light interior shots.

Don't use your flash. Some P&S cameras you can not control the flash so I just hold down the pop up flash.

Also some P&S cameras have a macro mode which is what I use.
