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.

Agree. After I got back and looked at them, I was doh! The sandwich is so stuffed that eating and getting the bun to close up is challenging. The insides come out.

Are you checking shots as you go? From what I read here, tethering to a laptop is helpful. If that's not practical, there's always chimping.

Toothpicks! Or, in this case, roofing nails.

I do need a means to view the shots so for those times being tethered would be great. The aging eyeballs combined with the smallish camera screen is serviceable but some details get missed. My view was higher so I thought more of the top bun was actually in the shot. After loading them up it was an oh-sheep moment, a return trip is necessary.

This one can use skewers for sure. ;-)a

They give a light coating of Italian dressing so the tomatoes and other veggies get that wet look to them.

Something different than a flat rack of ribs. What do you think?

Steak and greens quinoa bowl. Wish I took the dressing cup out, bread would have worked better IMO. That's how it comes out that's how it was shot.

This shot needs some highlights. Maybe a little sauce over the food or dig out more of the red pepper, or whatever that is to give it more color.

The meat looks appetizing in both versions, but more so in #1 thanks to the degree of detail. I think sharp focus is best to show up the texture. In #2, the plate is so clean it suggests there isn't enough sauce. Ribs are supposed to be messy and drippy.

Agree; putting on a sprinkle of the dressing would increase appeal. But you have the constraint of showing the food the way it's served. Plus, adding dressing would mislead/discourage customers who don't want dressing at all. Different lighting, then?

Cooking the meat medium rare, not uniformly brown, would add visual interest. Again, they may not do this. For all I know, the dish is assembled from vats of ready ingredients, like making burritos.

The tilt and the wide-angle setting gave the bowl a nonstandard apparent shape. This effect might make viewers a bit nervous even if they're unaware of it. The great big fork (because 22 mm) makes the dish seem small by comparison.

Appreciate the tips! The bowl is smallish and placement of the fork exaggerated that scale. They cooked it well done which gave the meat a hue that wasn't appealing. Some pink would have been nice. Generally the crop factor yields at 35mm work ok which is why I usually like using the 40mm/64mm or 50mm/80mm if I have a bit of space to pullback. May buy the native 32mm/50mm.

Some forks are huge so I may not use them because of the odd look they lend in these type of shots. Doesn't work as well with perspective issues either.

A variation with a different crop on that frame. Thoughts?

This helps with the fork problem. The tilt remains, though, which is possibly disorienting, especially because the dressing in the cup is liquid or close to it but its surface isn't level.

The crop is fine with me, except for that apparent suspension of gravity, but the client might want the whole dish shown.

I like #1 more as more of the ribs are in focus. The OOF glass could be better.
