Sony Hidden Project: A bit of detail

China PoblanoI go to so many amazing foodie events like this one at Bar Masa (and am such a foodie myself) that I always wanted to learn how to take good food pictures so I could share them with you. Well, I am finally on my way! It turns out that my favorite part about being asked to represent Las Vegas for Sony’s Hidden¬†project was getting to know the NEX-5RK’s macro lens. I am obsessed! As part of my job as editor-in-chief of Vegas magazine, I do photo selects of yummy food pictures all the time. Finally, I am learning the tech-y side of actually taking the photos! Here are just a few of my favorites, which ran during my photo exhibit at the Sony Store at Forum Shops.

The [ABOVE] photo and the one here were taken from a Chinese New Year party at China Poblano, at my favorite casino, Cosmopolitan. (If you’re new here, this year happens to be the year of the snake, my year, so I have been super-ecstatic about it!)

I also included some fun shots from the casino’s D.O.C.G. restaurant. YUM!




I LOVED this wine. Delicious and clever!

  1. Look at you, getting all fancy! I am excited because I signed up for a photography class later this month. Perhaps I will improve my skills as well.

  2. So the next time I see you, we’ll both be the freaks at dinner photographing our food from every angle and trying to get the best light.

  3. I recognize some of those photos! They’re all making me hungry! Great to see your putting that amazing new camera to good use. You’ve inspired me to learn more about my own.
