Great job Acapulco.

I think I agree with Kazuya -- If you're taking pictures of food, all of the important elements of the food have to be in focus, so you probably need a greater DOF, especially when you have multiple elements on a plate, like in #12. If you just have greens accents or just anything adding color to the plate, then that certainly can be out of focus. And if you have just one element, part of it can be in focus and part of it acan be out. That's why #17 works a lot better for me.

I'd also think about lighting a bit more. The meat-on-knife shot seems almost cold and impersonal because of the direction of the lighting (on-camera flash?). But you've got a lot of great stuff here. I really like #17 and I like the interlocking forks as well.

i really like 2, 3, and 9, you are getting better at this ! id recomend changing your ev to the positive side to brighten everything up, as a whole the shots are good, but they all look a little dark and somewhat flat, so some more light in the shots would really help out.

keep up the work!

Jeff

Thanks alot... I still haven't gotten around to get any new gear, but Im really teething for a flash and some other stuff hehe
The main reason my shots are a bit dim might be that Im shooting in poor lightning conditions and no flash and also handheld. And also Im afraid that Ill blow detail or getting too much noise when in Lightroom...But I checked some shots for improvement and you're absolutely right. More light is definetly better. How about these new versions?

you probabley can get away up to about iso 640 with no to limited noise and 1/15-1/20th a second hand held at f2 should really brighten up your shots.

ISO 640? how do I manage that? I can choose 200, 400, 800, 1600. Have I missed something?

i think to get 1/3 stops on a d50 you have to put it into auto iso and set the shutter and fstop, and it will choose an iso, and it allows you to get 1/3 iso stops.

The one with the fellow serving what looks like cake onto something green is very well done. When you get a little farther away, dof is sufficient to cover the item. Your practice is helping. Keep it going.
