It's not about the money, money, money
We don't need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the price tag
Ain't about the cha-ching cha-ching
Ain't about the ba-bling ba-bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the price tag..
.: Price Tag :: Jessie J :.
Kemarin di markas NCC di Matraman, sewaktu saya dan Nadrah lagi celentang di gua kami yang nyaman di kamar depan, bareng Endah yang kebetulan datang untuk kursus ayam kodok, saya terima info mengenai Pond's Teens Concert 2012 yang bakal mendatangkan Jessie J ke Indonesia. Sebagai generasi 80an yang dengan keras kepalanya menganggap “Musik itu ya 80an!”, hopeless lah kalo mengharapkan saya tau siapa itu Jessie J :D. Endah langsung bilang, “Itu loh, lagunya yang 'money, money, money..'..,” sambil nyanyiin sepotong lagu itu *pake joget dikit*. Oooh, ok kalo itu saya tauuuu! Hihihi... Penting gak?
Bear with me, please :)
Lagi-lagi, saya sungguh kurang piknik, karena baru tau kalo Pond's Teen Concert itu ternyata udah berlangsung sejak tahun 2009. Saya bisa sih maafin diri sendiri, saya kan bukan teenager, jadi wajar donk kalo gak tau hype ini. Anak 80an jeh. Kalo saat ini saya berusia belasan, pasti udah paling depan hadiiiiir.. Saya inget waktu SMP-SMA-kuliah, nonton konser Level 42, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger *tanpa Rolling Stones*, Europe, Phil Collins, Bon Jovi, Toto, sampe khusus pergi ke Solo buat nonton Yngwie Malmsteen. For the love of music!

How is it to take a food photo that really works? Can I use my simple pocket camera? How can I start with my entry level DSLR? How is it to perform a photo session when I am on a budget, have only few equipment and choking constraining time? How does different lighting make the food different? What is it about focus, DoF, PoI, angle, composition, styling, props? What are they really all about? I just want to take a good food photo. Period. How?
If you have such questions lingering your head like bees night after night, you need this book.
Neah, I just want to tell a story about how this book materialized in the first place. Never in my life I had the slightest idea of writing a book by myself, not to mention a photography book! It’s true I like taking photos since I was little. I got familiar with SLR cameras in my early age, around 7-8 years old I guess? My brother lent me his Fujica SLR and 50mm lens for the whole my senior high school year where I took it everywhere. But when I got my first digital pocket camera in 2005, I never expected what life might bring me. Little did I know it would take me to a place I never imagined exists, where I found new respect for things in life and (hopefully) brought me even closer to The Maker.
