Taking photos

Blog, Photography

Last Christmas, I got a Canon T3i for a present and I’ve finally started to really use it. I’ve read books about photography of all kinds, watched some videos online about how to take good pictures, even checked Lynda.com for tutorials about lighting and I’m constantly browsing Tumblr and Pinterest to see what “interesting” photos are suppose to look like.

I decided to stick some of my better photos on a blog so I can see if I’ve finally develop some sort of style and improved if any.

Here’s the link, if anyone’s interested.

Meanwhile, I’ll be accepting free feedback.

Thanks!

Taste of Athens 2012

Photography, Places

A couple of weeks ago, I received last minute tickets from my editor to attend the 2012 Taste of Athens. I only had an hour to spend there, so my brother and I grubbed the whole time we were there. It was my first time at this annual event, which turned out better than I had imagined: there were over 50 food/beverage/service vendors present, volunteers at every corner and, most importantly, a wide selection of foods and beverages to choose from. Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough time to try everything, but by our second plates, we were already full.

While I was busy eating and mapping out our next food stop, I only took these pictures (of my brother’s plate). I can’t recall the names of the foods nor their respective restaurants, but I do remember that they were all really tasty.
