There’s this cool restaurant that just opened at the basement of Centrepoint called New York Deli where we stopped for lunch one Sunday after church. What really impressed me was how well decorated the place was to mirror an American kitchen or diner in the 50s.
The place makes for great photos too.
So let’s do some fashion poses while waiting.
Or how about the cute look instead?
That’s my girl!
Don’t forget mummy!
- When shooting indoors, try to determine the right exposure in manual mode and once you’ve got it, stick to the same settings throughout. In this case, f/2.8 at 1/100s at ISO800.
- Try not to rely too much on one of the program/priority modes because the very contrasty nature of some indoor lights can fool the camera’s meter resulting in very under/overexposed shots.
- Even for shooting normal shots in restaurants, no harm asking for certain seats if you think they will get you better photos. I insisted on sitting in the corner near the wall display and the waiter happily obliged.
- If I could do this again, I would’ve used my flash for fill light to make the subject “pop” more. I didn’t like how the foreground (i.e. subject) and background were equally exposed.
