Is this comment about Fuji? Personally I use Godox strobes and move them. Haven't used speedlites for years but then I don't do any events. I don't need any speedlite on camera for what I shoot.

At the time I was using an XE-2 and a speedlite option was desired. I do a good share of my table top with off camera speedlites. Godox has since offered some nice options.

Try XT-3 you will love it. I have/had 23mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4, 56mm f1.2, 90mm f2, 50-140mm zoom. All were awesome. Sure DoF is less than FF but I could use my 56mm f1.2 @f1.2 without any issues where I could not do with my canon 5dmk3 at 1.2 with my 85L where I had to use that lens at f2. Mirrorless are better at focussing, slower though for some models. XT-3 will be joy to use even with the 18-55 kit lens. Do wait for some deals. I heard folks buy from greentoe which I have never tried. I end up buying lenses on forums.

Well, guess what, Bobby I just bought the X-T3 with 2 primes for the time being: the XF 16mm f/1.4 R WR and the XF 50mm f/2 R WR.
I shot with the 56 f1.2 and really didn't see that much difference except the bokeh was a ted nicer but I couldn't;t justify the expense.

Congrats. I tried the 16mm f1.4 and it was a nice prime, specially with its closer focusing distance. Enjoy your trip.

My attempt at Prop Styling, Food Styling and shooting a dish. And no, I won't be shooting the beer that I'm drinking now.

Everyone? I haven't seen it until now. I'm glad you posted. I didn't want to be the first one to say the pizza looks good but the silverware makes me want to yell "WAITER!"

Well, they do cut down on unwanted reflections. ;-)a

It’s been going on for quite awhile. It’s like using old surfaces, linen, plates, glassware and cookware as props in a shot. I would never eat with them but it adds a nice element to a shot.

Yeah, this is the second image I've seen in the past week or two with rusty looking implements. I made reference to tetanus in another post. :D

Backgrounds? Yes
Linens? Ehh... with caution
Cutlery? Ew! :eek:

I understand there is a trend to highly textured and 'antique' looking settings, but just the thought of placing rusty silverware in my mouth is enough to turn me off, no matter how appealing the food is. Sorry, I'm not a fan and I would never suggest that to my customers.

Why so serious Batman?-?

There was a straw berry post, then another post I don't remember, then this one. 3 in a week or so.

Food shots depending on what they shot for, yes. I am ok with rustic but not rusted, just my opinion. But I did like the picture.

I get the appeal of a homey, antique presentation. However, rusty looks like dirty. It works against creating an appetizing scene.

Pretty sure it is a quiche not a pizza.

On inspection, I agree. I skipped over its custardy appearance the first time.
