DH and I usually order two of these because we love them so much. It really is one of the best things I have ever had to eat.

Thank you. I don't know if I can give you a good answer since we were in the wine room at Remy with a party of six and the private room at Palo with 14 of us so I was quite isolated from the rest of the guests. Both rooms were excellent for flash (Remy better than Palo) as far as bouncing flash off the ceiling and white balance. I saw a lot of people taking pictures in both restaurants and I only take one shot of as many dishes as I could.

I'll stick with the 50mm for photographing food, agreed...definitely the sharpest of the lenses I currently own. Unfortunately, I don't own an external flash...is this necessarily to achieve similar photographs? Should I use slightly different settings when not using an external flash?
If you can't use a bounce flash I would definitely use the 50 f/1.8 and crank up the ISO as high as you camera will go. It will depend on how much available light but you can get many good pictures. I shot with a 30mm f/1.4 for my first trip to WDW before I learned how to use a flash and was able to get many good pictures. This would be much better than any picture you take with the built in flash on your camera. You have a very narrow depth of field so choose your focus point well. Using an on camera flash (attached to the camera and bounced) will obviously get much better results at a higher f-stop.

I'll take my first cruise on the Magic 9/12/12 to Canada.
Thanks for your input...I have seen flash diffusers for built-in flashes and will consider one of those. Actually, I read a photogrpahy magazie article that showed how to make your own diffuser...I'll try that.
Enjoy your cruise as well, this is my second Disney cruise, first was aboard the Dream and was excellent. You'll have a great time and eat delicious meals!

I believe my camera's iso expands uo tp 12800. I'll practice using my 50mm with high iso, by shooting food at home with some of the delicious meals my wife creates! Thanks again for the info...will help with my food photography!

Yes it is likely to eat the marrow. Marrow is highly flavorful and some people literally "suck the marrow out"!

My DW loves Osso Buco but does not partake in the bone marrow. It is considered a delicacy by some.

There are a couple restaurants in town that sell marrow bones as an appetizer. I don't partake, but I hear it is salty goodness.

I had a version of this on the Dream (it was served with a macaroon instead).

And I agree with the other posters - your food photos are amazing! Job well done & I love looking at them. Thanks for sharing.
