Chili Crab. There is. Nothing. Else.
As part of the ADE conference, I had volunteered to lead a nighttime photowalk one evening after dinner. After a delicious feast of the famous Singaporean chili crab and about six hundred other plates of food at the “No Signboard Seafood Restaurant” we all waddled out into the warm night and moved (painfully, slowly) around the harbor. But first, some food p0rn.
What kind of foodie am I if I can’t tell you what those previous things were? I’ll tell you what kind of foodie I am. I’m a single-minded, “this is why I came to Singapore” kind of foodie. Chili Crab. Oh yes my darling, the spicy chili crab and oh-so-lovely sweet buns that accompany it. This was about the 17th course of the evening, which I’m sure they did so we wouldn’t eat too much of the Good Stuff. If you go, get the crab, sod the rest. Ohhh sweeeeet crraaaaaaabbbbb………
Ok, *urp*, time to go shoot.
Cameras in-tow varied from point-and-shoots to high-end dSLR’s, and levels of experience matched. We discussed how expose for the neon-lit night sky, how to steady a camera, and all sorts of other little tips.
Some of the simple harbor shots…
At the end of the walk we did an off-camera flash portrait, again using the ST-E2 and 580 EX and the now ever-present Honl light modifiers.
