    I'm also newbies here
    Some of your photos got yellow cast, especially the 1st photo
    Can try manual WB next time or can read up the tips from other bros on how to remove it from PP
    Hope to see more of your shots

    Don't need to waste money on grey card. I cut out a white card board to use it as white card which I carry it in my camera bag hahaha or you can see if there's any white plate on the spot to use or not

    Most of them are over saturated. Reduce the saturation and you will see actually the WB is not that bad.
    Watch out for the black seaweed, you can't see the details at all. From far, it looks to me like a broken bowl.

    Very nice, minzhong. They look yummy indeed

    Don't mind my few inputs:

    - Watch out when you are brightening/bringing out detail of the shadow area, overdoing it sometimes will result in color fringing and/or haloing (as can be witnessed in the surrounding of the seaweed in pic 4 & 5).


    - When snapping do watch out for lighting/reflection on the subject, there are many hot spots especially on pic 3 & 4. Although you can eliminate/reduce them in post-processing (by cloning or multiplying), it's best to get it right shooting. You can refer to:

    Removing flash hotspots: Photoshop retouching - YouTube
    Photo Retouching: Removing Hot Spots In Photoshop SitePoint


    - I love the vibrancy of your photos but some are over-saturated (for eg. the greens in pic 4 & 5 are very pronounced), you can try selective desaturation (on affected area/s). You can refer to:

    Selective Desaturation Within the Basic Editing Rules - Tutorials



    Please continue sharing
