    I'm not a fan of the ~20° tilt. I have to tilt my head and I keep thinking the food is going to fall over. I can't really comment on anything else because that is completely throwing me off.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum ... and you might not want to put your entire address in your Location in your profile.

    I think they look great. Nice lighting and comp.

    I don't mind the tilt, but it might bug some.

    The second one made me hungry. :thumbup:

    Nice. I've tried to do food a couple of times. Not as easy as it looks.

    Did you have a stylist? Did you shoot this in the studio?

    I normally light food from: top- rear- right,with a softbox if you see what I mean, fill in the front with a reflector and you get super soft shadows coming forward This allows one to shade the background as much as required or light it by cheating the softbox towards the rear.

    What type of food is this? Never seen it or taste it.

    And as astrostu said: you might want to take your address off from public display.

    It doesn't really matter but I'm not liking the shallow DOF nor the tilt myself.

    The photo's are great, the food, except for the cheeseburgers, look gross:lol:
    In all seriousnes, although I am by no means a professional photographer of any discipline, over the years, I have picked up bits and pieces of the "art" of shooting food, and have learned that it's part science, part know how, and equal parts "black magic".

    The shadow on #1 is kinda bugging me, but otherwise - they all look great.
    Even the tilt looks good to me.

    Google maps shows it being in a business park next to Tri Color Paints. That's probably not his house. ;)

    ...Studio?

    Not too bad. That tilt has got to go. You have some hot spots that need to be taken down. The burgers need some work. The third shot is your best. Keep trying. Good luck!
