1.in what area is critique to be sought?
I would like to show how delicious the food is as I love taking pictures of food. However, most restaurants have low lighting and I find it very difficult to take a sharp picture with the correct white balance.
I would like feedback on the composition, focus and whether my settings are correct.
The equipment and settings used are:
Canon 450D, EF100mm f2.8, ISO800, F3.5, shutter 1/50,White balance Tungsten, AF mode - one shot AF, evaluative metering, 0 exposure compensation, no flash
2.what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
I want the food to look as delicious to the viewer as it is to me.
3.under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
I took the food under low yellow light conditions and I focused on the orange mentai stuff on the top of the green avocado
4.what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture
I feel that I can be better, the white balance looks too yellow. I thought using tungsten white balance would help but it didn't seem to help. Not sure what I am doing wrong. If there are suggestions on how I can take a picture with the built-in flash (without making the picture look washed out), feel free to suggest too.. thanks
