#1: Generally, it looks OK, but unless you need to leave room for an AD to add type, I'd have framed it closer & maybe used a smaller plate. "Food shot", not landscape with food in it, no?
Not caring much for the bread? on top of the tuna + it's shading the highlights in it.

If these were for product shots I'd hope you'd iron the tablecloth first - #2 is very creased!

The exposures in 1&2 look good though but 3 just looks cluttered.

These look pretty good. What kind of lighting did you use?

I think they look good, but most of them have a blue cast to them. The first one has a gray cast.

My guess would be that he/she used a standard airplane window close from the right and then another standard airplane window a little further away from the left.

#1 was in a restaurant without any special lighting: smoked salmon "bomb" filled with norwegian shrimps.

#2 and #3 are shot out of hand while sitting in an airplane seat with the lighting as PhotoCupcake guessed correctly.
The blue cast is the "high altitude" light (taken at 35000 ft) and the plane interior's reflection. No opportunity to iron the table cloth... :)

You can make small adjustments in post to fix the gray or blue cast. Here is a quick edit on the first one. I adjusted the curves and then the white level and gave it a tiny bit more saturation. I did the edits just on one side so you can compare.

I'm not a food stylist by any means but the lemon looks too far away from the rest of the food. There is a little too much leafy between the lemon and the egg. That also might take away some of the emphasis on the salmon.

The backlight is a little hot or hard, especially on the tomato. Although angling the tomato might help but then there are two hot spots on the salmon.

Right away though I liked the light in general.

Nice edit juxtagirl

I like the edit too, although it makes the plate really white but accentuates the salmon better. I PP the shots on my laptop while travelling and uploaded from there to Flickr. I can see what I should have changed on my home display.

Do I see a hair across the plate in the first shot? No big deal, you can just clone it out.

Not a bad looking airline fare. I don't think I was ever served a meal on board a plane that did not come on a tray.



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.
