Alvin, do you ever get to eat anything that's still warm?

hahaha always! taking a photo only takes a few seconds so i am usually eating the food same time any other person... food arrives, snap a couple pics and then eat! if you are taking so long to shoot that the food gets cold, you are probably at an actual photoshoot... i don't do photoshoots, i just take pics before eating XD

Ham Wrapped Baked Egg
QUOTED IMAGE

It's actually quite an interesting idea as a recipe - does look tasty and nice to see the yolk is nice and runny as it should be.

But - execution of the presentation and the photo could be improved on. First thing I'd suggest is not using a pre-sliced piece of bread like that - maybe a hand cut slice of sourdough, toasted on a griddle would work better.

The angle of the shot is neither here nor there - maybe try shooting from above or, if you do go from that angle, go wide angle. The background is distracting and you should watch the plate you serve it on - looks a bit old and scratched.

What lighting are you using? For food I'd suggest window lighting where possible with maybe a bit of bounce light from a white board the other side of the food to the window.

BTW - That dish is crying out for some black pepper - or chilli flakes - or a splash of tabasco on the egg.

This is nice enough. The processing is interesting but the food I think would benefit from a less-flat treatment - more crunch/contrast possibly.

Also - a narrower aperture would bring the whole shot into focus. You might be going for that arty narrow depth of field/wide aperture shot but actually food shots often look good from above with a narrower aperture - something like f/8 - f/11 would work.

And also - your props - try finding an old fashioned spoon - something worn and used - would suit this shot better.

Nice idea though.

Lloyd, many thanks for the pointers, something for me to work towards

I'll just address a few things, not as an excuse, just more from providing a bit of background

Lighting was provided my a single on-camera Speedlight, bounced off the white ceiling. Still a bit too dark dingy outside at that time of the morning to take advantage of window light

Sliced bread is all we had in the house at the time and it is indeed an old scratched plate, our regular everyday crockery in fact
This was my actual breakfast I had made for myself and not a staged shot, the idea of a photo came about as I was serving it up

And yes it was eaten with cracked black pepper on
:D

anliz, it depends on what effect you were going for. It's hard to get moody with a bowl of chow mein. I think the food would look better with the lighting evened up--it's too directional. The black background is a personal choice that would suit some purposes and not others.

I think noodles with lots of color is not a good subject for the moody look I've been aiming for :p

Thank you so much for the feedback , OhLook ! Really appreciate it :)
