First Food Picture, I Hope!

I know this isn't the best photography, but I decided to try a food picture about 3 minutes before lunch. We went with stir-fry today, a combo of marinated(garlic, ginger, soy sauce, white pepper, sesame and peanut oil) chicken, shrimp, bell peppers, onions, baby corn, broccoli, and celery over white long grain rice. Chicken stock mixed with a thickener and the marinate worked pretty well! I am still struggling with the photos, so I'll get another lesson from my son!

Your lunch sounds delicious! My kind of food.

I know what you mean, it's not always obvious to take picts of our plate!

The Urban Vegan always does such a great job at it!

Keep it up, practice makes perfect! ;-)

Steph- That's about how it hits you, isn't it? Us too!
Michelle ann- I gotta lose some weight first!
jen- My wife and I agree- I make pretty good stir fry, but the restaurants that specialize in it are better...
mt- I take better photos normally, but we were in a rush to eat it while it was hot!
Snow- If you saw how long it takes me to get the picture onto the blog, you would either laugh or cry...
NancyB- Our table and counter are reflective, so next time I will put it on a placemat!

looks like a good standby when there isnt much left in the fridge:-P You were quite right about the spelling of the scottish drink. I really should have paid more attention as the bottles passed me by.....

It looks like it is from a magazine. It may need to be a bit closer but I can still hear my tummy growling.
