Thread: Cadbury's Bar

  1. #1

    Default Cadbury's Bar



    Was bored last night, until I remembered about this Cadbury's bar... the itchy fingers start to click here and there, but all came out to be about the same final product - there dont seem to be so much ummmph, or something missing to make it look more appealing that would make my mouth salivating...

    How different would you have done it?

    Maybe the bar is lacking of a huge bite mark. Lol. Maybe you should give it a bite then take the picture...hee.

    Alamak dont compliment me too early la brader... paiseh leh...
    Melt the corner... huge bite mark... hmmmmmmmm... by the time I read this msg, the choc finish liao... hehehe

    Cos other food pictures are relatively straight forward, since its usually on plates / bowls... but for chocs... quite challenging there. There are lines and patterns... and the colour...

    DOF can be improved further.....
    Would very much prefer the foregrd to be in focus and the background to fade.

    agreed... it will be better if the front cubes are in focus and the back cubes blurred. but nevertheless this is so interesting... especially when u read it in the morning and u have not taken breakfast!

    also agree that bite marks at the corner would be awesome man!

    nice shot.
    just a thought - the foil is a bit distracting for me. I would love to see you try this with just the chocolate bar and as stated try and get the front of the bar in focus with a nice sharp ' cadbury.
    good idea btw.

    Thanks for the suggestion; I should have put in more thought at first.
    The camera was on the desk, and the choc bar was tilted at an angle, hence the focus is not on the foreground. I should have tried more angles and different focus points.

    The foil distracts; perhaps it shouldnt be where or how it was presented? Cos I thought the foil would / should be something relevant associated with chocolates, esp that it may reflect light, and with the crumples and all... hmmmmm

    Yes, I will try again, and post up the result soon! Thanks for all the input!

    Hmm, I quite like your photo. Makes my mouth water. Yess, N I somehow always link the silver aluminium foil with cadbury chocolate. Part of the climax is peeeling it off bit by bit isn't it? Don't think it'll look the same without e foil...n plain brown all by itself. N what it needs is a bite mark...exactly frm yur point of view when eating a chocolate, n not some staged photoshoot of a chocolate model.

    My 2cents worth!

    i think the foil makes pple feel more like eating it. at least it worked for me. but well i wish there was more foil and a bit more like someone just rushed to open it. You know? hard to describe the feeling. haha... but it definitely will allow the pic to tell more! how abt getting one more bar and try it out and post here to show us.

    haha...I was thinking a huge bite will look more dramatic...perhaps with some fallen bits of chocolate crumbs on e table from where it broke off, contrasted with e white bottom. lol! Geez, I'm craving fr cadbury now!

    So....
    there has been suggestions that I should have a bite of the choc first... so in another try, another version, another chocolate, here's what I got...

    << TOBLERONE >>


    Better / preferred or other alternatives?

    Which should be priority; two lines of FR, or the lines / piles of books?
