My wife cooked water cress soup for dinner yesterday =)
Think color still got reddy cast leh
You use chopsticks to drink soup? D2X Idol rox!
heh.. not sure about the reddy cast... but that just looks really, really unappetising...
perhaps something to try would be a shot with more elevation in it... so you dont see so much of the oily soup... and perhaps try and work with less light/ flash.
then again, nothing against your skill.... i think its just that it would take some genius to make a picture watercress soup look remotely good.
For sure if I were to see this pic used at a stall, I prob won't wanna order it. Seems like leftovers :P Also the chopsticks shouldn't be there at all.
sorry i meant elevation from an architectural perspective... right now, you are shooting it looking down, i mean try shooting from a more horizontal perspective,Originally Posted by Paul_Yeo
put the berry thingies at the top of the mound of watercress... and some wellchosen pieces of pork... and dim the lighting a little.
pro... nvm know water cress soup can look so good
I completely agree with this comment... IF the way the food is pictured does not even remotely entice the viewer then its pretty much uselessOriginally Posted by ndroo
Take away some of the watercrest (think its too much) and make the soup clearer by diluting it it water. May not taste as good after that but would look better maybe
I think the highest stage of food photography is: even if the viewer hate that type of food, but after viewing, he wants to eat!Originally Posted by kirschrot
Eg, if I hate to eat fish, but when I see a fish dish taken by some expert, it is so well taken and makes me wanting to eat fish!...
dunno if I am making sense
true.Originally Posted by Paul_Yeo
the main essence of food photography is to make the food looks appealing and viewers who viewed it, want to eat it.

Maybe can get your wife to try this:
To make the soup less cloudy & clearer, briefly boil the pork ribs in hot water. Then pour away water & transfer the meat to the pot where you boil the watercress & red dates.
Use a nicer bowl & not too much watercress... arrange them nicely & shoot
After that eat it & you'll find that you just had the best soup ever!
