The Evolution Of Food POI’s Food Photography
It all started 2 weeks before our national independence day in year 2007. That time a lot of my colleague were taking annual leave and ask about good foods location in my hometown or any places which I’ve been to. In my day job, I travel a lot and always look for best local foods which recommended by my business associates or customers. During that time, I just use my phone to take the pictures. It was a Sony Ericsson K800i 3.2Mpixel Camera phone which still in service until today. This is a good phone I can say.
Then after 2 months using this, I felt that I need to get a better picture quality and also lightweight. I require lightweight gadgets cause it makes me more convenient to travel around with it.
SONY Cyber-shot DSC T10 – 7.2Mega Pixels Compact Camera
So I get myself a SONY Cyber-shot DSC T10 which is a 7.2 Megapixel compact camera. This indeed is a very compact, handy and work pretty good for day to day shot. That time I have started to venture in to GPS (Global Positioning System) community. During the weekends, I am pretty free so I just drive around with my GPS and go to the nearest food spot [Which is known as Food Point Of Interest] recommendation and sort of like QC the taste of the food recommended. I am quite particular on foods taste, cleanliness and also the price for it. You know la … Penang people live in a land of hawker foods heaven. With RM1 you can call it a meal if you don’t mind to go simple dish.
Pictures were taken and simple review is record written [You will notice this on my earlier post]. Time fly by and I receive a lot email from my readers asking why my food blog/portal has so little info with so many pictures. They ask me to go in depth of the foods like other food reviewers.Time pass by and more readers hop in to my blog. From there I earn quite a substancial amount of money when I join Google and Nuffnang when they launch. So from the money earned I invested those money back for the sake of the community. The SONY Cyber-shot DSC T10 is good but under low light condition the picture quality are not acceptable and very hard to capture. I dine quite frequent in restaurants and those lightings are usually dimm. Hence I acquire Canon Powershot G9 together with the Canon Speed Lite 430 EX II.
