Hi. I love food and I love photography. I combine both in my blogsite ieatishootipost.blogspot.com. As I have only seriously starting to shoot pics of food about 2 months ago when I bought my Canon 350D I would appreciate some pointers from the experts here. Constructive criticism with solutions on how to fix the problem would be great. Also at the same time to introduce you to some great eats which I gathered from my food forum kakis. I plan to blog most of the major Food Centres in Singapore introducing 5 of the top stalls in each centre. The latest is Lavender Food Square which you can view by clicking this
My equipment is a 350D with 28-105mm lens and 380EX. I am planning to buy a 60mm 2.8 macro.
1. What do you all set your saturation, contrast, tone to when you shoot?
2. Will the new 60mm lens give me sharper images or more saturated colours?
3. Most of the shots were touched up using photoshop. So comments on tone, colour balance would be very helpful. I tend to favour a more yellowish tinge to the pics rather then blue as I think it makes the food more delicious. What do you all think?
4. Since different monitors may favour a cooler or warmer tint what do you all usually do to compensate?
