Moon Festival falls on my B-day this year so going to have an Asian theme meal on that day tends to be fairly busy. I like off hour dining for the quietness so we went out early to celebrate. In a complete opposite went American. LOL.

My lunch pick: lobster roll on brioche bread and they comped the passion fruit gelato after the Mrs. relayed that this was an early B-day outing.

<doh!> placed this in the wrong section. :-|

Well now I'm hungry again. Nice work!
I am, however, thankful you didn't also have chili on this delicacy else I would be starving.
 :p

icopus,

Adding chili would be a great idea!
No matter how I tried, these Cheese Fries images seem too austere for me.
There was only so much I could think of to do with only fries, cheese, and a pinch of salt.
(To a couple on Flickr, we added a fork to some. Wow.)

After we made this for our Saturday lunch, my spouse mentioned that she has not made chili in a while.
I really appreciate your idea.

I know that these images are fairly plain, but it is nice that some folks like them.
Thanks for that!
(I actually tried as hard as I could with these)

A little braised short ribs would do well too...

I've already 'liked' the image. I like the highlights in the cheese. Maybe a darker background would let the fries pop out more, & a spot of chili would draw the eye into the shot, too.

Thanks for the tips!

For fun, I searched Google images for ribs & french fries and there are loads of great images to learn from.

I also will try the chili, perhaps even as soon as this weekend.

I do like the colors of the Pulled Pork & Nachos images that I previously posted (#630), but again, that placemat is a bit "surgical", yet is perhaps the best one I have for photography.
Something more logical, likely, or French Fries-appropriate, would have been better.
(A round "bar tray" with checkered "deli-paper", may be worth trying)

I intend to keep at it, and I am grateful for your tips and comments!

I agree with PhotoGuy about a different backdrop, perhaps something simpler and warmer. You might try including a small clear glass ramekin of a dipping sauce too. Or maybe a couple of drops of Tabasco on the cheese fries too with part of the bottle showing behind the basket of fries.

Well, your cheese and fries look way better than I've seen at most restaurants! lol.

As far as you actually adding chili and posting those pics, ... , well,... I'll then probably have to get some, but I suppose I can double up my Nexium. :-P

You're welcome for the idea. And once you master it, I imagine Frito pie* would be especially challenging. :twisted:

* It's recently come to my attention that Frito pie is unknown in Boston**. I will, therefore assume, that this simple delicacy is sadly unknown elsewhere as well. -

** As reported by Houston Astros fans attending the playoffs in Boston.

My stomach reluctantly looks forward to your next captures. ;-)a

Maybe some finely chopped scallions dropped into the cheese sauce at the last moment (just before pouring over) would add a hint of complementary colour. Plus they taste good.

I have taken the icopus Challenge!!
(With thanks to Dan Marchant and navydoc for their tips as well)

The chili recipe is in the related Flickr posts.

I'll try using fatter French Fries next time, as well as adding Chili with beans (most likely my spouse's insanely-good, "Cowboy Beans").

I need to get some of those nice backgrounds, as they were revealed in the Post Your Food Photography thread (post #5444).
inkandelm.com

PhotosGuy also suggested in this thread, trying a different background someday and I agree.

I am not satisfied with how "surgical" I tend to shoot food in my kitchen, such as with the Chili & Cheese Fries below.

Lastly, I placed an image in the Post Your Food Photography thread of a Jerk Pork Sandwich at a pub last night that was so spicy, my eyes watered.
I will be longing for another one of these sandwiches, for a long time to come!!!
That image is also much less, "surgical".

Nice composition on these Mark. I agree that the grey background tends to give the images a colder, 'sterile' look and would look more appetizing with a warmer wood or other material for a backdrop.

It's always a challenge shooting on white dishes and in this case, white sour cream for good measure. I'd also like to suggest you try opening the shadows in your camera raw editor.

I hope you don't mind but I tried it on one of your images above as an example of opening the shadows. I will remove my edit if you prefer it.

I feel like a Paslov dog. I am salivating. Awesome!

As far as the background, well, all I see is good food. lol.

However, instead of searching for that perfect tablecloth, you might try fabric stores in search of that perfect color you want or need. You could pick up several pieces to experiment with.

Or home improvement stores for wallpaper or laminate for the wood look. I don't know if those would work in photography though.

(If I may)
Gene,

I appreciate your edit!!
Please leave your edit as that I, and perhaps others in this hobby of ours, picks up something from it.

I will go over it with my spouse as well, and try my hand at it.

I have limited post processing skills.
I excel at removing tiny gnats of defects, but not a whole lot more sometimes!
