Also to fix the white balance issue you have I would use the fork as a grey sample point then after that reduce the blues to

Its always going to be difficult like that mixing three light sources that are out of your control and different white balances too. If ever I am using a window light I would have all the lights off in the restaurant and then use the window as the key light behind and then a reflector for some fill, if you dont have a reflector use a plate.

Was this a fun shot or paid gig?

Excellent tips!

The was a practice shoot. Will also put some additional time in post to refine. This one I used white matt board as reflectors with the ambient lighting. The challenge-learning experience in these shots helps prepare me for variables that come up. (that's relatively speaking at times which also makes them PITA's).

Not happy with this one either. My composition and camera angle is lacking. Sometimes the way the meals are plated up adds more challenges to set the table up visually. With an oblong plate, the meatloaf is not center stage so turning it lengthwise away from the diner is not a realistic setup. Potatoes placed center is :(

You guys should shoot regular laymen food for a change. Expensive foods already have their charm so any camera would have been able to exhibit such stunning colours. Nevertheless, the angle of the shots also matter so points for that.

I think the key is to shoot what you can really. The more you shoot, the better you get.

That's tough to follow Anthony's shot.

Lunch time grab. This was a fun day with the niece so the kit (no mini tripod, speedlight or reflectors) was left behind. I enjoy the challenges (sometimes) of being in these lighting conditions. The bare shot and after I'd shoveled half of he meal into my face. ;-)a This shop has huge ceiling to floor gray tinted windows and the usual halogen can lights above.

Alexander the Crepe: grilled chicken, smoked bacon, fresh spinach, melted swiss with a sweet spicy sauce.

The light is really wonderful. I have the same fork or knork as Gene calls it. Horrible shot, though

My first knorks. Didn't know there were such things. :rolleyes:
Those are obviously right handed knorks. :lol:
Are they the first non ambidextrous eating utensils?

Mouth is watering for those! All we have locally are donuts and other such simple pastries and cupcakes. -?
Well done!
