Food Photography Tips?
 
I'm working with a photographer to get some tips for food photography... And I was wondering, if you're interested in taking better food photographs, how you'd like to get the info...

I voted slideshow with audio, but would be equally as happy with text and lots of photos.

Ask if he can help the "point and shoot" people! You know the ones that use the "A" mod.?:icon_blush:

Keale, it's a she, but she can help with that, too... I use a P&S right now, though I hope to upgrade... There are other settings than 'Auto', but the way. :)

I know a lot of what we've talked about so far is helping set up better lighting and composition more than just saying to buy a good camera... that's not going to help if I don't know how to take a picture at all.

I've got a decent camera. Even though it's a digital I can still operate it like a 35mm, with exposure etc, but it's almost too much for me to comprehend when I pick up the manual.

Here's an early photo from my blog, then a newer one, after some tips.

What's the "A" mod? Is it that thing on my point and shoot that says "Auto"? If it is...that's me! :mrgreen: Aloha!

i want her to come over to my house and show me!
so, other
:biggrin:

Rick, 'tain't happenin'! She's not local. :)

JD, the 'A' mode on my P&S is for aperture priority, which I actually use a lot.

I want Rick to come to my house! That boy puts out some good looking grub and some great pics! But if that's not an option - text and lots o pics.
Curt - that pic of the ribs is NICE....

I voted for text and photo's. It may be easier to show an initial picture, then several others with different settings along with the do's and don'ts or why's and why not's. This format would allow us to download some of the examples easily if we wanted to.

It may go both ways too, we could post a picture and get comments on how to improve it.

LOL!! Yeah I know, I use to take pics w/ a 35mm, but like Joe...I go to read the digital manual, and I get dizzy! BTW, thats a good upgraded photo you have! Made me hungry!:-P

I think we should get Rick to teach us for free, since we have to put up with all his pictures!!:twisted:

This is in Q-Talk, NOT Woodpile! :)

LM & Keale, thanks... The second was after a lot of help figuring out how to take the shot, though I still have a long way to go.

Thirdeye... Maybe we can get the admins to start a new section for photo critiques!

Ok...time to be serious. I have an "AV" and an "Auto"...no "A". However, I have it on good authority that Santa will be bringing me a new Canon G-9...It may have an "A".:biggrin:
