Food Styling and Props  - 
 
I think I'm still drawn to the food styling is a bit more cramped and cluttered. This is how food and my own kitchen is to me. Stark food shots just don't appeal to me as much right now because they don't seem real.

A nice backlit shot of the soup is here:

I think this soup would have looked too stagey in a pristine setting.  The rustic table and hunk of bread are perfect props.  Looks delish +Trevor Kensey

Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines. Kind of an odd combination but it looks intriguing.

I was all set to take a zillion shots all plated but when I saw all the textures of this cauliflower cooked up in the pan I made it my money shot.

I didn't stage this. The tart was on the table so I challenged myself to walk around the table and move my body in and out until I found a shot I liked without moving anything.

Very nice - I love how the wine bottle almost blends into the background but is still present enough to be a useful element in the shot. Lovely crisp tart and serving plate. Delicious! +Trevor Kensey

Not really in effect. The only thing is that the lemon wedge seems too tiny for the glass & ice cubes.

Soup can be food porn too if it is this colorful.  Another good one here at:

Working more with light and shadow. In my case it was out of necessity as there was no available light and no time for set up.   The other shot was more traditional but I'm not convinced it is more interesting.

I love the high contrast lighting, but I'm not in love with the big black area on the right. I think it would look better cropped tighter, maybe in a 4:3 format. Looks yummy, thanks for sharing.

I would have rated this higher as the food was great. The problem is that the kitchen shuts up tight at 9PM even on Saturdays so you had better be done ordering by then. For a 'small plates' restaurant this makes a difference as you don't usually order your whole meal all at once. This is done without a 'last call' notice as well.

Farbod is not only a great teacher but an accomplished performer. My family has hired him many times to play at parties and not only was his fee very reasonable but having him there MADE the party! I would strongly recommend him for your event or for lessons.

First off, there is nothing 'reasonable' about the prices here but you will not beat the great collection of modern eyeglasses and you will NEVER beat the knowledge of the sales staff in helping you select the perfect pair of glasses for your face. I go in to get a new pair every couple of years and walk out with TWO. And the service doesn't end when you pick up your glasses. Any time you are in the area you can drop by and they will clean and adjust your frames, nosepieces, tighten the temples, etc. I am just in awe of their ability to pick out just the right frame.
