Since I'm learning something new, I figure I'll let you guys along for the little journey. Here's my first food shot. This is straight out of the camera, no retouch. I'm not happy with it, but I learned a lot, and that's how we get to where we wanna be!
First issue: I was shooting on a tall bar table, and I'm short, so that limited me to this angle. I believe I'll use normal height tables after this. Second issue was my styling, which leaves a lot to be desired. I've never done it before. I think this is too busy, and could use more negative space.
Hopefully my next attempt will be much better!
At least you can see my process and know that not every photographer is alway perfect! We all have to take the time to learn, even if we have years of experience.
