Re: 35 pics?

I am truly not trying to start a flame war, but I like the original poster's lighting better. I like your pic, especially the propping, but it really is more of a record shot with copy stand lighting. Very sharp and easy to read, but not very yummy.

Chewhow's lighting shows the translucence of food items like lettuce and the sheen of moisture/oil on surfaces. Yeah, it needs more depth of field in some of the shots, but I think he is going in the right direction.

If you get them, my favorite food shots of all times are those amazing Red Lobster TV ads! They use tons of back lighting with light streaming though squeezing lemons and steam. Yum!
