3 – 9 Sept ’11
Billy the Kid found a recipe for a dessert that apparently harks back to the knight age. He tells me Lords and Ladies feasted on this marmalade tart.
Apples and Oranges Baked in a Pie
Started out with the old Sigma zoom – it’s what was on the camera and when you’re baking and making dinner there’s not much time to stop and swap lenses! I should have known. Low light situation + poorly lens = not good shots…
The zoom lens will soon be making a trip back to the repair shop. It is still have issues with focusing, and is now doing some weird jumping/vibration thing.
After dinner was eaten, with the pie in the oven I took the time to swap to my 50mm lens. Ah, that wide open aperture, narrow DoF, much better for the lighting and an improvement on the composition.
And with a little setting up, an embroidered cloth, antique plate and silver fork, a scoop of icecream and a wee garnish of orange peel – viola!F-stop f/2.8 Exposure 1/60 sec ISO Speed ISO-1000 Focal length 50mm
It was delicious! Those Lords and Ladies sure knew how to feast.
