Thread: Digital cameras

    Default Digital cameras

    Without exception Digital cameras are a wonder, convenient and a breeze to
    load pictures up on the net.

    However I am beginning to wonder if our food pictures are not, at the very
    least over done. The radio forces the listener to use their imagination. A
    book cause us to create a word picture in our minds that is in line with our
    dreams or fears.

    Some how the word Porterhouse brings forth a lovely picture of a well
    marbled piece of steak ready for some salt and pepper .

    Then I click on the link for tiny-pic, lo-and-behold, there is a piece of
    dead cow in someone's less than clean kitchen.......

    I suspect with few exceptions I may discontinue clicking on these
    unappetizing photos. Maybe photos should be restricted to our animals and
    the occasional spectacular creation.

    (Maybe that is why we're called amateurs)

    With all due respect - proof your photos.

    With all due respect, stop being such a pussy. I enjoy most of the
    photos, and will continue to post mine.

    I'm making thit kho (Vietnamese pork belly stew) today and will be
    posting pics later. Just so you know to avoid them.

    With all due respect, bite me. '-)

    Geez, D, I'm not posting for a photo contest. I post to a.b.f. for the
    helluva it and to my blog for my family. If I posted an uncluttered
    picture in a spotless kitchen they would call the cops and file a
    missing persons/kidnapping/somebody's posing as my mom report.

    (Besides, nobody's posting pictures to rec.food.cooking, anyway!
    Harummpphh!)

    Koko and I do, at least. Several other people do off and on as
    well.

    It's funny how those 100% cooking related posts seem to get
    overlooked by the majority of people here in favor of the inane
    threads about absolutely nothing.

    And then people complain when they say I don't post anything
    cooking-related. It's kinda ironic, eh?

    I pack more cooking/food info in one post than the majority of
    people do in their posts combined over a weeks time.

    I think my ISP provides some access to binary newsgroups. I forget who
    it contracted out to, but it's a different newserver and has limited
    ports. Their standard newserver has few binary groups and no limit to
    access (although if you aren't logged in through the ISP then you are
    prompted for your ISP password). If I'm interested in a post on this
    group and there is a URL for pictures, I will often click it.

    I have enjoyed Steve's pictures.

    You're not posting pictures to r.f.c., Dude.
    You might be posting links to pics, though. (I make the distinction.)
    Is that what you meant?

    I dunno D. I do see some well done pics in abf and sometimes I'll post
    some of my own over there. Now and then I'll post a link to a pic in
    here but not very often. I enjoy looking at the pics myself. I don't
    think any of us posting our pics are looking for a prize in a photo
    contest. Speaking only for myself; I tend to take my pics either when
    the food is still in the pot (or whatever it's been cooked in) or right
    after I put it on the plate. Sometime I go out of my way and do a pretty
    garnish but that is very seldom. I'm not looking for magazine quality in
    other people's pics and I sure as heck to give it to them in mine. Never
    heard a complaint until now. My kitchen is always a mess when I cook in
    it. I'll probably never put a pic up with my kitchen spotless and clean
    and the food beautifully presented

    You're picking nits. If anybody manages to actually post a binary
    picture here in RFC, it's usually a fluke as most news servers will
    not accept them or strip them out. Most people here will never see
    any binaries posted here.

    Sure Peter! I won't repost the somewhat lengthy description, but the
    photos are in my food folder on webshots... it still surprises me that
    people actually want to download pictures from that folder - I'm a
    pretty average cook and the photos are as much for my future reference
    (so I can look back and see that I made something new on X date, which
    reminds me whether it was worth trying again or not) as for anyone
    else...

    Christmas steak-fest...
    http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...ome-and-garden
    and the next half-dozen photos through to our after-dinner nibble
    http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/...ome-and-garden

    Our kitchen counter isn't the most attractive in the world but that's
    not my choice! When you rent an apartment, the kitchen comes with it.
