how did i do?
they're not lit well enough, too many shadows and no "pop", my opinion only. H
Not food I'd eat.
I agree they could be a little lighter, but I think these are some of the best food photos that I've seen on this site. Good job!
Did you prepare them all by yourself? I like the second photo though.:thumbup:
Yea, there isnt' enough light, but if you are in a habachi restaurant as I suspect you may be, that isn't something you could control, and they tend to be really low light anyway.
Also, maybe if your aperature was a little smaller (higher number) you may have gotten the crawfish on the spider roll (I think that's what it is) to be clear from top to bottom instead of just the bottom where you were focused.
Otherwise, nice job
thanks guys, yeah light was an issue... it was really dark in there.
I think you put forth an "ok" effort, but the images lack punch, and the styling and background compete.
Try using a main, a fill, and a back light, much like you'd use a hair light. Everything, including the sorbet, is all "real."
You need help with your styling. I would also say you would be better off showing less background and more of the plates. In a couple it seemed like 1/2 of teh dish was missing and the backgound was 1/2 of teh picture or more.
