    Default Beef Patty

    Composition , lighting, DOF with respect to food photography

    2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
    Capture a dish which I enjoyed

    Light was coming from the right from the window.

    4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.
    Personally I like the shot in a sense the texture of the patty was captured, something which i felt important.

    Thank you in advance for your critique.

    Lighting is too flat. I can't see any juicyness in the beef or the mash potato. The red cabbage on the beef is out of place, it steals the subject focus.

    try using shallower DOF and boost contrast slightly.
    e.g.
    you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye

    Thank you Rashkae and Zaren.

    @Rashkae in this situation, as mentioned that the lighting is flat, in your opinion should i use bounce flash?

    @Zaren other than changing the aperture, is it possible to achieve shallower dof by altering the angle from which i take this shot?

    The lack of contrast in ts shot makes the food less appealing than it should be. I would go for contrast between ts and zaren's. I feel the red cabbage is alright as it appears to be part of the garnish on the patty, however ts can consider pushing red cabbage higher.
