Hey everyone I just wanted to share with you a picture from one of my newest blog posts and just wanted some feedback.

This was just taken with my Iphone 6 under normal settings and natural light. I use photoscape to edit my pictures and it has some nice features for working on those center focus shots. How does the angle look? Haha I appreciate all feedback!

The recipe is a avocado tuna salad with some fresh salsa in case anyone was wondering. Thank you.

Hi Guys, before and after shot of my Butternut Squash Soup.
Back Window light
Nikon D3200
1/125sec
f 5.0
Hand held
I tried my hand at photoshop to get rid of the darkness at top of soup/bowl. Brought out some colour in the seeds and carrots.
Critique welcome please.
- I was thinking maybe I should have used a different colour placemat maybe dark wood?
- not sure how to take the shine away from the spoon in post?
- will use a reflector to add light to window side of bowl next time...

Thanks,
Dupinder :-)

Upon +shirley byrd's suggestion I have reworked this shot and desaturated the distracting, blue base. What do you think? Diffused, natural daylight with reflector.

+Warren McColl Jones Thank you!
Yes—that is the idea in food photos, to make the viewer want the dish. ;-)

Got our hands on a passion fruit cheesecake topped with a good amount of blueberries and raspberries for our midsummer event and thought I would have a go at it with my camera. For those of you more gifted in the whole staging process, what did I do good and what can be made better?

A lot of awesome shots in here by the way, keep up the great work

Please critique my photo... I need your help
I need your help. I have submitted an article on the creative use of props and I was asked, for variety sake, to add some photos with a background different than black. Ok, that's easy: white is the farthest thing from black you can think of. Problem is, I kind of rush my creativity and I am not sure the intent of the photo is clear enough. So, since I cannot decide, I'd like to ask your opinion. without further ado, this is the photo.

Do you get it?
Do you find it interesting or just plain stupid?

Hope you will have some seconds to help me out. Thank you.

+shirley byrd thanks and.. yeah... I agree that the worcester bottle has little to do with the concept, since apparently is not that spicy. Unfortunately, I am running out of time because of the article submission dead line. I hope is convincing enough to illustrate a creative use of a prop.

The food is beautifully composed but the photo is not. Perhaps a different surface under the plate. Also the light is uneven and too sharp. The fingerprints are distracting and make the plate look dirty.

New to post processing so...little bit done here :-)
full bowl crop - side window light about 2 feet away - I like this one.
tight crop - side window light, food placed on window sill. I feel the shadows are too harsh here?

Which one do you prefer?
Color ok?
Critique welcome!

Thanks,
Dupinder

Hi everyone! I figured I should get everyones input prior to my posting new recipes on my blog, so here is one of the pictures I wanted feedback on.

Currently I am using my Iphone 6 with natural lighting to the right side. I have no setting adjustments or anything, but I feel like there are things that could be done better. Thoughts? Thank you!

+Marina Fateeva Thank you for your participation! PLEASE NOTE we are primarily a food photography community. We are looking for a discussion and description of the process of making the image. Not simple photos or snaps of food. Not links to blogs or recipes. This means, a post that simply says, ”iPhone, natural light" is NOT acceptable.

Examples: How did you light the image? What lens did you choose? Why did you pick that angle? What about plates, props, styling choices?
Please edit your post above with the appropriate comments.

READ FIRST RULES! https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/114895417659148613939/stream/88526db2-4740-4c96-9905-eadc0b183b3a

iPhone image of a White varietal flight in Sonoma, CA.
Because there was a colourful, distracting background of blue and orange, I decided to take “artistic license” and use streak and bleach bypass filters. What do you think? Does it work or is it “weird”?

While I like traditional food photography, at the moment I work on a more minimalistic approach: if you saw some of my photos on this community, you would have probably noticed that I tend to photograph sweets and ingredients, mostly in low and high key, using simple setups and few props on reflective surfaces.
I am now trying to introduce some concepts in my food photography, either by building surreal scenes, either by arranging the food in a certain way, like my recent coffeee/tea Yin and Yang or the image below.

It has been quite a refining process to arrive to this image and I am quite happy about it, both technically and for the concept I try to convey, which is that sometimes in love the best bits are tears. Tears are somewhat a measure and a way to show (and understand) how important something is for us.
But, while I can be happy with the image, I'd like to have your opinion about it, both photographically and as conceptual image: does it work the concept or it is just plain stupid? is the photo technically ok? how would you improve it?

Thank you to all of you will feel like to share their opinion.

+sherif elsiginy I guess there are tons of freeware software for this. Have a look on google using watermark as research word. Or you can probably use gimp if you know it. If u are on Mac OS computer, you can probably do with photo app or with some plugins for it

Blackberry pie. This is such a delicious and an easy pie to make but my lattice crust did not brown evenly. Anyone know the secret, please enlighten me!

Canon Rebel 1200D with a 50mm prime lens on a tripod. 1/100 sec, f/4.0, ISO-100. Natural but cloudy daylight on left; soft box light in the back; and white foam bounce on right. On camera speedlight bounced from the ceiling. Some post processing. Still, I just couldn't get this to pop. Any suggestions are welcome as I plan to make peach pie with a lattice crust later?

+shirley byrd I would love to see some props with the gorgeous pie.
It tilts down to the left, btw.
Here is one that I think pops: https://www.mysugarpie.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Blueberry-Lattice.jpg

Hurray! I have my first speedlight, a Yongnuo. I'm looking forward to better light to the front of my subjects. After chasing my dog around the apartment clicking, clicking and clicking, she simply started turning her head another way when I aimed the camera at her face. So back to food photography where the subject stays still or just melts. LOL

Here's my first subject on learning how to use my speedlight with my long desire to do more reflection work but on white. Roma tomatoes and drizzled water on a Plexiglas (thanks to a gift from a neighbor). The reflection is not as defined as I would like but it's a start.

Canon Rebel 1200D with a 50mm prime lens. 1/50 sec, f/4.0, ISO-200. Shot on a tripod with natural light from left, soft box from back, and on the front is a speedlight bounce from the ceiling (forgot to order the dome diffuser). Touch of post processing in Lr.
