Taking Photos of My 301/302 Korean Dinner

For last month's Tampopo Dinner & a Movie, I ordered a new digital camera, which arrived the day before the event. So we barely had time to fully master its many features. However, the day after the dinner, I took the time to experiment with it, and got some very nice results. Now I feel confident that we can get those great close-ups that food photography requires. And once again, I will probably assign the role of staff photographer to my son Will, since he did such a diligent and consistent job of it last month. Of course, my Korean dinner won't be nearly as elaborate and complicated as my Japanese dinner, so the pace should be much more relaxed for taking photographs.
