Shopping for Coronavirus Lockdown

Nope, that was not what I saw when I walked into Sainsbury’s yesterday evening. Matter of fact, there were only 2 banana’s left on the shelf and I grabbed them both! I had been out and about the week before last and everything felt quite normal. I haven’t bought or worn masks or gloves but…

Let There Be Light! – New Photography Gear

In photography, lighting is everything and so this winter has been challenging. The days are quite short and cloudy and I need to make up for the reduced sunlight with softbox lights. Since my sister-in-law bought my Excelvan Softbox lights, I decided to replace them with these.

Food Review: Wakkis Restaurant, Abuja

Going by its name, I assumed Wakkis was a Nigerian Restaurant serving traditional Nigerian cuisine, since “wakkis” is another word for “food” in Pidgin English. But was I wrong. Turns out it’s an elegant Indian restaurant on Aminu Kano Cresent, Wuse 2, Abuja.

Food Review: Yahuza Kilishi (Dried Meat)

Yahuza Suya Spot Nig. Ltd is known for making the best Suya in Abuja. Beef, chicken, kidney, liver, gizzard; You name it? They have got it.

But, this is not a Suya review. I’m here about their Kilishi.

I was taken by the simplicity of the concept; minimalist with strong contrast, and the clarity of the message.

Food Photography: Okro Soup

Zooming in close, my lenses picked up on those tiny delicate hairs on the okro pod, giving so much texture to this simple vegetable. I fell in love with the pentagon shape of the okra slices and the small white seeds. I wish I had a proper micro lens so I could really capture the intricate details of this beautiful vegetable.

Food Photography: Rice and Stew

I decided to attempt dark food photography after being inspired by a Pinterest blog. My first attempt was a disaster because I couldn’t get my camera settings right, the black cardboard came out looking blue and I didn’t know as many Adobe Light room tricks as I do now.
