Product Shots of Food

my first actual serious attempt at food photography.


i must say, taking pictures of food is very difficult, i had to take lots of inspiration from cookbooks. these shots were taken for my dad for his restaurant.

    Looks pretty good, light may be a litle harsh. Colors are nice though, and overall it's a good shot. I found the best light for these kind of shots to be just the natural light on a cloudy day coming through a window. I'll usually put a white reflector of some sort on the other side to fill in the shadow areas. The exposure times will be longer, but the soft diffused light is nice :)

    thanks for the critique!

    as i said, i never really do too much food photography so this was one of my more serious attempts. I didn't have too many materials/supplies on hand. so i made use of a sheet of paper as a reflector.
    i do agree it's a bit harsh to show the glow on the beef, but aww well i'll try again some other time.

    I'm thinking you should've stopped down just a tad bit more to ƒ/4 or ƒ/5 to get more DOF. Right now, there's too much oof light spots which don't make it really appetising ;)
