It has become an addiction for me to take photos of food. I started taking photos of food when I started this blog back in 2009. I used a very regular camera. But when it became an obsession, I upgraded my camera til i bought the love of my life which I’m using these days Nikon D7100. It’s like my second baby after Jana.
What I’m missing is good lightening and a set up corner. Hence I’m living in a small apartment, it’s very hard to find a good corner. And I’ve noticed that taking photos in the morning is way better than at night when you don’t have professional lighting which I’ll be getting soon.
Now, there was a really good workshop for food photography weeks ago which I wanted to go to but couldn’t because of work 😦 I wish they’d make another one because I’d like to learn more about food photography, the right corner, angle, lighting and more.
Yepppppeeee finally I got my hands on the camera i wanted to buy a while ago but couldn’t due to financial issue. But now it’s between my hands and sleeps next tome *dances*.
The features of the D7100 are really super and cool. Good for close up photography and places but it’s not a full frame, the only negative thing in it but i don’t care about that because I really don’t need a full frame and if i need it oneday i will use my husband’s Canon 5D Mark III 😉
Got 2 lenses. 50mm/1.4 and 18-200mm. The best lenses ever (to me ofcourse) and they are really cool. I’ll be using the 50mm more often because that’s what I work with on daily basis. The other lens is kinda huge and will be used on special occasion.
Can’t wait to get this baby in action and use it in restaurants and events 🙂
P.S. I shot these photos using my husband’s camera Canon 5D Mark III with the 50mm/1.4 lens
As every mother, we want to capture those beautiful moments before our children grow up so fast & then we will have only memories. I did alot of researching & googling regarding who’s the best photographer in town, found many & all are great but my gut told me to go with SayCheeez Studio. A lovely Kuwaiti girl that has a home studio where she captures beautiful pictures of your child. She has the patience to wait & take lots of pictures until she gets the right one & after that you choose which one you want!
I took many clothes for Juju but i didn’t realize that it’s gonna be a hassle & it was. She got very grumpy from all the changing & settings she had to go throw (7abibty) but at the end we were able to get beautiful pictures ❤ Can’t wait to see the final results!
The nutella shot was hilarious, a lil bit of chocolate came inside her tongue & she kept on moving her tongue all the time, until I wiped it out 😛
Thank you Dalal for your patience, it was nice dealing with you & great knowing we have such talent in our beautiful country.
KD 3 per shoot & it comes in 3 sizes (4×6, 13×18, A4) Printed & on CD

I received an invitation to try Snaprint website which will be launched to the public soon to try it & print 1 Canvas & 5 Polaroids pictures. The website was very easy to use, upload pictures, variety of options were available, sizes & other specifications. Registration & checkout was also very easy & fast.
I wanted to print some of my honeymoon pictures, for the canvas I chose a picture of Tioman Island which I took. For the polaroids I also chose pictures from my honeymoon with my husband.
Delivery was very quick mashallah, placed my order on Saturday evening, received it the other day.
I’ll give you my fair opinion about the quality & the prices.
I know my birthday is more than one month away, but what can I do? If i want something so badly, I have to get right away & I know how to get it on time 😀
As we have a Canon D55o, I thought why not try a new brand? If I like a brand, I never change it, so I was kinda reluctant to have this camera as my birthday gift but then I’ve read good reviews about it & said why not?
The Canon is very professional, we have around 3 super amazing lenses for it, & it’s big & heavy! I;ve always wanted a kinda professional camera but not that big & heavy! This one turned out to be the best choice.
Nikon Coolpix P510, is smaller than DSLR cameras, light & gives you super sharp photos with its 16.1 megapixels CMOS processing power.42x optical Zoom-NIKKOR ED glass lens. Built in GPS which automatically adds the location to your photos. Full HD 1080 movies, cool ha? Panorama mode which automatically combines photos to make 180 or 360 images (Can’t wait to try that 😀
In general, it’s what I want & I like it. If you want alight camera for regular photography then this will be a very good choice 😉
