Antonelli's Cheese Shop

I wish I could take credit for the set-up, but the set up was done by Antonelli's. In hind-sight, I wish I would've gotten their logo in focus and not used such a shallow depth of field.

...nella mia cucina..

primi scatti di un mio nuovo progetto riguardante la Food-Photography, cercare di creare con la fotografia la magia e la luce che si vedono in alcuni quadri di pittori Olandesi, o almeno ci provo!!!!
Grazie per chi lascerà un giudizio e mi potrà dare consigli per migliorare la mia fotografia

Food Etiquette

I have a question about a shoot I'm doing for a local lifestyle magazine. The magazine contacted me to shoot some food shots for an article. They picked the restaurant to provide to food and location and I get to shoot there. My question is does the restaurant get to use my photos for their own use and advertising or does the magazine hold on...

5way reflector + speedlight = softbox?

I need to shoot some food for a newspaper but don't have access to a softbox and often have limited space. If I put a diffusion panel from a 5-way reflector on a stand and fired my speedlight through it, would it act as a DIY softbox of sorts?


Bixa, Mexican Restaurant

It's Lemon fromage with raspberries.

Any critique is most welcome, also any guesses how this was lit is welcome as well!

Please help to choose between Canon eos 1200d vs Nikon d3100

I'm a beginner in the photography world, and I want to learn photography specially (food photography) to start my own business (Digital marketing and Graphic design company) , of course the first thing I decided is to buy a camera, but I have a tight budget, so I confuse between two cameras (Canon eos 1200d vs Nikon d3100) in my country Egypt...


Hey there I'm new to food and beverage photography but I have a potential national campaign on my hands and don't know how or what to base my services off of pricing wise. Me being new to this I don't know if I charge per hour, per photo, or per shoot, or if there is a formula to it all. I don't want to come across rude and ask for something...

Critique this set?

Images from a series I'm working on. Always looking for ways to improve techniques in consistency, balance, colors that seem off, etc..

My stuff

Hello guys. I am from Brazil and have been shooting food for a year or so. I can clearly see the improvement I've made. But some advice is always a good thing and I'd like to hear some from you. Here are some of the best pictures I have and anything good or bad you have to say will be a great help!

Critique my ice cream sundae

I would like a critique on my ice cream sundae that I shot this past Friday. I was given the assignment on Thursday afternoon and shot first thing the following Friday. This was shot with a Nikon D5200 with the kit 18-55mm lens. I shot tethered to a macbook and used PhaseOne CaptureOne to process the image and export out the hi-res tiff. This...

First post

Hello all, I've followed for quite some time and finally decided to join.
Here's a photo of a dessert plate I took for a catering menu.

First Attempt At Food Photography

This is my first time photographing food and I would love to hear your critiques. Do not hold back while criticizing. I wanted an overall warm mood in this photo and although it looks very saturated that is what was in the raw file without much editing at all.

Taking a bite at food photographer

Would love some input on these images and no I am not apologizing for the pun in the tittle. I know the images aren't perfect but would love input to see if I may be missing anything. Also how does the filet mignon dish look? I know it is somewhat out of focus (should have deeper focus) but the focus stacking did not work due to operator error...

Wild Boar Burger - Before and After

So, I was asked to show a before and after of a shot I did thats on my portfolio page. I had posted up there earlier but wasn't happy with the post processing. I thought it would also be educational to see a straight up RAW image out of the camera, and a post-production images as well. Let me know what y'all think!


Chicken Sausage and Bowtie Pasta

A shoot I did a while back for my portfolio. I had been feeling that my other work ran the danger of being too visually busy, so this was an attempt to simplify and streamline the look of this dish. CC welcome!

Savory Salmon - "Cover Out!"

We shoot a restaurant clients actual, ticketed food going out to one of their guests. Out process momentarily diverts the plate for approximately 20 seconds.

In that time we will (with the chef's advanced plating assistance), both lightly style, and light in a complementary way at the shooting table.

Just three shots, it's still...


Hi folks, I guess it's only fair that I post an image for you all to critique, since I started this group. I'm still very much working towards improving my food photography, and I decided to try a more environmental shot than I usually do.

Frosted Champagne by Lauchlan Toal


Grilled Chicken Taco Salad

Hello Everyone,

This is a follow on assignment for one of our restaurant clients, in the development of their new menu. Unlike our standard shooting workflow of briefly intercepting an actual guest plate going out (about 20-30 seconds), the four new menu items we completed, had no waiting guests. At the instruction of the owner, we ate...


I posted this one in my portfolio too. But I thought I would go into more detail here. This was some b-roll as my stylist worked. I used a Canon 1Dx and Canon 100mm Macro for this. I also used Speedotron lights with a PocketWizard Transceiver II topping the camera. I hoped to recreate window light in studio. I think this is the closest I've...
