One of my duties at work is to do quality control on the patients food. My tray is served and brought up to the floor with all of the other patients meals. I then check the temperature of each item, as well as do a taste test. (Yes, I get paid to eat.) It's a tough job but someones gotta do it!!
I used my compact camera for this shot. It's small enough that I could slip it into my lab coat pocket. Walking around the hospital with a DSLR hanging around my neck is not part of my usual work attire. Discretion is the key here. :-) That's the beauty of having a compact camera. More on that another time though. Oh, by the way.......this really is a heart healthy breakfast........and it was delicious too!
I decided to give the food setting on my camera a try. I've never used any of the "scene modes" on this camera before, so it was interesting to see what settings it would choose for me. Do you think it's "cheating" to use those preset settings? I never use them myself, I like to have full control of the exposure, but I know they can be pretty accurate.
