Hence, I'd and have to expect you to have acquired some simple knowledge by now ok...!! lah...and the rest...some other 'tips and tweaks' we'll discuss 'behind-the-scene/backstage=PM'...Pls remember our agreement and always...yah...bro!!!!!
    errr....not really controlled haha groomy day at my side not much light coming in. I dont have lamp at home hahaha

Ok, the rest we'll go behind the scene ok!!
    The reason for omitting my cutlery is.....I can't find a matching chopstick and spoon at home
    and I cheated on the bowl haha I used a smaller bowl to make the fishball look bigger so the size of the cutlery a bit not size matching hahaha

    I like this one but the pic looks empty both left & right. What I would have done is probably placing the mat diagonally (a tad) or crop it or add sm cutlery. You can also bring back sm detail on the fish balls/cakes.





    I don't know, I just wd love to sink my teeth in whatever balls those are.. Hehehe.... Look yummy!!
    Joke a side, I agree with bro Eric. You have to take note of the consistency (not only the WB bt also the exposure) espec on shots of the same item/s.
    Oh dear, sound like sm secret society kinda stuff, can I join tht 'behind-the-scene' pact??
    Ya should have crop it...time to shop for some new kitchenware

    Will take note of the exposure~ the weather weren't doing me any good that day haha

    Compo-wise it's alright as in 'acceptable' for the above 2-shots.....leh, Anthony
    ah...thank you bro hahaha

    Well, for the above shot, you'll really need to know what you want and are going to shoot = is it for your client/or as-requested or just a casual-fun-shot with playing of 'Bokeh'...??which?? is critical ok...so don't play play hehe
    Thank you hahaha for this shot I just want to concentrate on the beef roll, that why using the bokeh to bring the rest away and let the beef roll stand out

    Thank for the tips!!! I will definitely go back for this lamb chop hahaa love it so much!! wWill try out the compostion again!!!

    Yes bro Anthony, #272 & 273 were presented with good and careful thoughts in mind during these shots = the bak-chot-mee well cropped and exposure and details of the importance as well as appropriate amount of DOF applied in this case = got my once again...!!!

    As for the Fried-Wanton, a very balance close-up of it with good amount of DOF applied=very appropriately DOF applied(referred to the 2nd-Wanton-pic), and of composition and sharpness too for the two-wanton-shots.....hence, another from me....well!!!

    Do remember to/must keep it up hor, bro!!!

    Mee Jawa!!! Looks nice, how did it taste?
    I prefer the more soupy version with perkedel (potato croquette) but still, would be great to have a bowl of it now
    Btw bro, you may want to pay attention to the chromatic aberrations which is very obvious ard the plate and chopsticks.
