As good as this Low Fat Black Bean and Sun Dried Tomato Lasagna was, I think I could have taken a better photo of it. Critique welcome!

- The presentation of the food is good, but the plate draws my eyes away from the food. When you set up your next shot try to minimize "distractions" surrounding the main focal point. Some "distractions" are good - as long as they lead the eye to the main point (i.e. the food). Hope this helps.Jan 14, 2013
- I'd agree with, the plate is a bit distracting, especially since the dish itself has a lto going on. I also think it looks like you used a front flash which really highlights the front of the lasagna but kind of makes the dish and everything else kind of gray. I would consider a more even lighting for the photo.
Finally, you might want to either consider a smaller plate or a larger serving. The lasagna kind of looks a bit lost in the large plate.Jan 14, 2013
- Thank youand . I truly value and appreciate your feedback. I would have to agree that it probably would have "popped" even more on a smaller white plate. I didn't use a flash while taking this photo; however it was fairly bright outside and this was taken near the window. I was using a nikon dlsr with a 50mm lens with natural lightJan 14, 2013
- Since it was natural light, you might want to use a reflector (I use a piece of white foamcore) to help bounce a little light in the background and give it a little fill. That or move the dish a little farther from the window or use a scrim to diffuse the light.Jan 14, 2013
- Thank you for the great tip, I'll try that next timeJan 15, 2013
