About “Hapa…Shot the Food”:
“…shot the food” is a blog focused on food photography. You may, however, see posts referring to non-edibles now and then.

Who’s behind the blog?
I’m a thirty-something librarian who loves to cook, eat, and take pictures. Thanks to being a Navy brat growing up, it feels like I’ve been almost everywhere! I currently reside in the DC ‘burbs.
Why the title?
What is a hapa?
“Hapa is Hawaiian slang for someone whose mixed racial heritage includes Asian or Pacific Islander ancestry” – Donna Seaman, ALA
I identify with this term not only because I am of mixed Filipino/Caucasian ancestry, but also as a former resident of Hawaii. It’s a part of who I am… a part I’ve fully embraced.
What equipment do you use?
Generally, just my Canon PowerShot SX260 HS (with iPhone photos appearing every now and then). I’ll sometimes use GIMP or Picasa to touch things up a little. Older shots were taken with a Canon PowerShot A3100IS, Canon PowerShot A570IS or a Canon PowerShot A520 (with liberal use of the macro settings).
Can I see some of your other photos?
Sure…just follow the Flickr Tab at the top of the blog! You can also see the five most recent pictures I’ve uploaded on the right sidebar, and check out my photosets from there.
Can I use your photos?
All of my photos are Creative Commons licensed: generally BY-NC (attribution, noncommercial), but I’ve allowed occasional commercial use on a case-by-case basis. Please contact me by commenting or through the contact page. Either way… I’d love to know how my pictures are being used…
What about your blog?
Under the same CC licensing terms as the photos. When in doubt, contact me!
