SIMPLICITY

To get the "juices" going again I have been shooting casually, I am working from home which allows me to have my camera handy.

This is a classic from my childhood, crackers with cheese and pineapple jam and a cup of tea, in this case earl grey. I like the warm feeling of it, with natural light coming from behind (took it in my window kitchen). Using my Sony a57 and 50mm lens.

Little editing in Capture One and Photoshop to get rid of a few spots in the mug.

anyone have a tip or tricks on reducing the glare on the soups. It took me awhile to figure it out in a way.

Shot with a Nikon 60d, natural light and I used a white sheet to diffuse some of the light from the window. I'm a rookie..

New to food photography! I am thinking of buying my first camera. I decide to go with canon instead of Nikon. What beginner camera would you recommend and should I buy the camera kit or buy the lenses on the side. Thanks in advance for any feedback!

Rolls con tapenade combinado con aguacate, queso llanero y pimentón, caponata.
La cubierta la hacemos con pan Arabe ligeramente tostado, lo untamos con el tapenade y luego colocamos el relleno de nuestra preferencia.
Para servir, hacemos una cama de picamiel o mermelada de cebollas y vino tinto y allí colocamos los rolls, posteriormente dejamos caer gotas de aceite y vinagre macerado.
Una delicia para compartir o usar como aperitivo.

Hello.

Are any of you guys selling stock food photography? Is this an effort worth pursuing? I spent some time a while ago putting some of my photos (non-food) out for sale on microstock sites. I've had no major hits, and spending any time on selling my photos for $0.35 a pop feels like a waste of effort in hindsight.

Hemp spelt bread

I am really curious ... do you think my photo is made with natural light or artificial light? Can we really make the difference between the 2 types of light?

+Denisa V Thanks for the answer. As my first comment indicated, I initially felt it was artificial light due to the harshness.
Later, I looked at the exif due to the time of day having come up. 
I have some artificial lights, but rarely use them. For my purposes and photo style, I like natural daylight. 
BTW— As  +Greg Poulos asked,  is that butter or margarine? I also noticed the "margarine" look initially. However, it might be due to the light, which would just underscore my point. :-))

Taken outside, minor color retouches. I'm wondering what better photographers think about the choice of background - is it distracting? Also, is there a bit too much light (reflections) on the top-left side of the dish? Thank you very much for your thoughts.

In a Food Nation like New Orleans the entire city typically goes into mourning over the death of one of its truly great and beloved chefs. Today was no exception as we learned of the passing of Louisiana-born Paul Prudhomme, who in the 1980s single-handedly introduced Cajun-Creole cuisine to America and thus sparked a culinary revolution. RIP Chef Paul. (Photo/Times-Picayune archive)

Lemon Series:  Lemon Zested
Continuing exercises in how to shoot with everything in focus (narrow DOP?  (One more still life exercise shot and I'm off to cook with the lemons.  Can't wait!   The lovely smell of the zest really made me hungry!)

 Canon Rebel T5:  Light side on top - F/8, 1/4 sec; dark side F/10, 1/4 sec  Both taken with ISO 100, 50mm 1/4 prime.  Shot mid afternoon next to south window, cloudy and heavy rain.  Soft box for back light. White foam board on right side.  Tripod used but without a timer or remote control.

How would you have taken this shot for clarity, sharpness and  everything in focus.  As you can see, I have missed the point again!  Thanks for any comments.

Hi, I am new on food photography, but one thing I am experimenting with is focus stacking. It is routinely done in macro photography and consist in taking a number of photos each one focused on a different area of the frame. You will then have to merge them in photoshop. this photo https://plus.google.com/communities/114895417659148613939/stream/5a7ea4ac-72a7-4bc1-b7d9-0bd557f4731b is the resulting of merging 4 shots: one for the wooden board, one for the two chocolates on the right, one for the third chocolate (higher than the other two) and one for the coffee. Hope this can help, even if it is a very late answer, considering you posted this in october
