Apple Lattice Pie w/ Mallow Cinnamon Cream
So just today, I finally cut off my usual ritual. I did the photoshoot morning time which is quite different specially when it comes to the outcome of photos.
The shots look fantastic compared to the night shots where I usually use an umbrella lighting. The power of the sun's natural lighting is indeed doing better than white umbrellas with just an artificial light of white bulb.
Yah I do love shooting at night because for me it's very convenient since during the day, I have some errands to do. But today, I'm shifting to something new and of course adjusting my day schedule is a must.
How I came up with this? Well, it all started when a friend told me I should use photoshop. But dude, I did and even lightroom. Lol.
Maybe my skills are not quite the superman level yet. :-D
Sometimes I think, maybe it's my camera. So recently, I've been using my Sony Alpha 6300 along with the 50mm f1.8 lens and I see a lot of difference.
I'd say mirrorless cameras are lighter and better for videos which is why I use it all the time for my videos, DSLR's are quite better in regards to photo qualities that works better in low light but at the same time they're bulkier.
As for me, after all the realizations, I decided to not use the Alpha for my next photoshoot and only intend to use it for shooting 4k videos instead.
Today seems to be the last day for my baby alpha to work for a photoshoot. I just set it aside for the meantime.
So these are my shots today, using the Sony Alpha 6300 with 50mm f1.8. If you're a photographer, you can see a lot of downsides- mostly chromatic aberrations and the not too sharp and crisp lines.
"I promise, this Apple Pie is just irresistable"
If you agree with me or if you have any ideas about mirrorless vs. dslr, please leave a comment below and let me know what you think about it and your thoughts about what camera is getting a more crisp and better, clearer shots.
Also a great advice would be awesome! That's good thing about Steemit, we all are here to contribute and help the community grow and exceed.
Okay guys, I have to talk about the recipe too. I had lots of fun making this recipe. The idea of combining marshmallows and condensed milk with the cherries and cinnamon dust is just amazing. I thought it's not gonna work but I am very happy with the result.
The taste came out so good that you can't resist the smell of cinnamon and cherry together and the goey chewy marshmallows with the milk, it feels like heaven. Oh-ohw!
Alright so here's my recipe for today. I hope you guys like it.

I have to be honest with you guys. I don't really call it vain but I love watching my food videos. It feels like a meditation for me. It is basically the sound and art in the kitchen. The sound of the fork, the spoon, the knife, the cutting board, the water, the mixing, the squeezing, the blending and everything in it sounds like in a grand symphony: a kitchen live music. For me, it is just sooo soothing. It's the reason why I put audio on my videos so you guys can experience a different way to watch too. So I wanna share with you some of videos here:
