Attempting to shoot sandwiches... Been a frustrating week. :rolleyes: At least I had a nice lunch, maple honey ham with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes.

I am just a beginner in food photography but to me if you added another hard light source from the back, it will help with shots like these. Since you using strobe on the front, you can bring up the ambient if keeping single strobe shot. IMHO don't need to be at 1/200.

A little experiment in the kitchen, too low of an angle?

It's pretty low, but you never know. It could work as an illustration for a health article on, say, overeating, or the ostensible dangers of gluten, or any subject that called for food to look big and intimidating.

I did an ambient in steps to gauge if the back lighting added to it. By the time the tomato slid out, I'd dialed it up to that speed. The following shot is earlier in the series where there is a hint of the ambient, that was what I liked best. Still some massaging to to do.

I like the angle as it expresses a dominance over the usual food shots. I may borrow that for the next one. ;-)a

Using hidden toothpicks may help hold the tomato and other slippery foods. They also makes the sandwich lighter by separating the layers and top and bottom of bun.

Great tips! I missed that particular spot so it was an amusing yet dynamic shoot as the succeeding frames it was drooping more. Was making a strobe adjustment when it fell off so I missed it. That would have been a neat action shot with a slower shutter speed for the blur as it fell. Might have to purposely try that.

This sandwich is more heroic than a hero sandwich!

A very stuffed cappacollo sandwich. Been struggling and when I think I get one aspect done another area requires a fix. Good thing I enjoy eating these. ;) I forgot the tooth picks so trying to balance this correctly was a challenge. It wants to lay like a taco. Shooting this at a peak hour was fun for the background.

A slight fill at a 1/128'th pop for the sandwich.

It looks delicious but I wish the top bun was more evident so it doesn't look so much like an open face sandwich.

Agree on both counts, and I'd like more space on the left side.
