Just joined POTN, so thought of posting my old favorite food photos I cooked last year, shot using my ex Samsung nx300 (switch to Nikon D810 :P) ... hope they make u hungry ... Cheers :)

All shot using Samsung NX300. Camera not found in metadata, so simply choose Samsung S4.

Those all look so professional! If you're not a chef, you do a great job of cooking like one.

ohlook & lupo ... thanks for the compliments. All shot done in my small study room on a small ikea wooden outdoor table with umbrella + natural light plus dozen of props I collected .... now got 2 boxes of them. Look good doesn't meant taste nice. Anyway, as always my family will be the judge for it :)

kelvinj , those photos sure makes me hungry , your photos are beautiful indeed ! Are you a foodblogger ? The pineapple tarts look pretty delicious , I wonder how you made them ? Is the dough firm enough that you can shaped it that way ?! I made the same shape with my pineapple tarts last time but mine came out blah :P :D

hi anliz ... not a foodblogger (wanted to be ... too many thing to focus). ok, back to your other qns, yup it is firm, i tries a few recipe from internet. finally got 1 right for melt in-mouth tart. I dont have the recipe (not mine) with me now, i can post the link later after work if u want. ... i use small scissor to cut the pineapple texture, dough is quite soft then brush (soft) egg yolk to coat it ... if i make again, I probably will brush it after baked for 5-10mins as the dough is harder, shape firmly form then & easier to brush. As u know, normally for shooting we will choose those best looking out of bunch ... some do crack :)

itsallart ... if I may suggest. For a start, shoot close up (easiest as require minimal props), low angle, place your food on the left & place it near windows where there is sunlight ... practise rule of 3rd ... I am no guru but it work for me at the beginning. my old shot was not pleasing also ... cheers ;-)a

Kelvin, thanks for the ideas....I am aware of the stuff but I'm a casual blogger and usually when my food is ready it's either too dark or my family is absolutely starving and I have no chance to set up anything...but here is one just to show you...far from being as beautiful as yours are :)

itsallart ... looks good, adding props will be better than mine. Actually same apply to me, time & space (tiny room) are constraints. What I did is I prepare 2 sets, 1 huge for immediate consumption & other small for my shooting. Drawback is end of the day, I am the one eating cold food ... while on catching the sunlight ... i have no choice but to cook early or worst need to use my 2x umbrella lighting kit :)

Did an outdoor shot ... love it but more challenging especially in transporting the food. Advantage of outdoor is can leverage on scenery & make it look more natural. My buddies thot I was mad suggesting to do outdoor food shot by myself

I sometimes shoot outside too.
And yes, I too, am the one who eats cold food but my biggest problem is the light or the lack of :)

itsallart - Daylight Savings Time Springs forward this weekend (in your area) and the days are getting longer as well.

I prefer the natural light also and therefore do most food photography from spring into late summer. The rest of the year I will try to work on other photo projects.

Lupo-Lobo, that's a kind of what I do too. I'm looking forward to that time shift this weekend :)
