    Yah, I agree with you....I have been shooting food with I go makan and I am using 50 f.18....it super shallow, but I can stop down as the ambient light is too dim....so some times I will underexpose the pic and PP it.....good thing the digital photo can hold details in the shadow very well. I am still learning.....I am a newbie anyway, just sharing wat I faced in food photography....

    Food Photography - What to look out for?

    1. Check for the purpose of the photos.
    a. For menu
    b. for kitchen
    c. for promotional flyers etc

    Different purpose require different style of photography.

    2. Check if they engaged a food designer or art director for photography concept. If is for a menu publication, the entire food product range needs a certain amountof consistency or styling.

    3. If no designer or creative director is available, find out who can approve your test shots.

    all the best!
