Default Food Glorious Food

Got to take some shots at work this week......... and then eat and drink the subject. Interested to have different opinions and feed back as the shots are going to be used in the restaurant brochure.

Some of it looks a little dry. A paint brush and some cooking oil might of helped. Food is one of the hardest things to photograph. You did well.

Diane, these look delicious!!! tjsnaps is right, food is one of the most difficult things to photograph, and I think you did great. If you were entering these to a food magazine, then I would say brush oil on it to give it luster, but then you couldn't eat it!! Wow, totally making me hungry.

Hi TJ & Saly - excellent, thanks for that tip and for the encouragement. Did not think of that at all and it would have helped as everything was wilting or baking in the hot sun......... but it did taste yummy

Good job Dyane, instead of brushing oil on, how about one of those small spray bottles of oil?

Can I have a slice of cake before it gets covered in oil?

Nice detail and use of DOF on these. #1 could use some horizontal leveling. I also agree that some spray oil to bring a glisten to the food would make it look very delectable!

The lightingand White Balance is perfect What kind of lighting did you use?

Hi Jelpee - thanks so much for your lovely feedback on the white balance etc, means a lot to a novice like me. I agree about the levelling in No.1. No added lighting, flash, or diffusers etc, all shot using the natural light on a sunny day, with a few light clouds flitting along. Thanks once again
