    I always take pictures of my food, just can’t help myself.
    I’m about to go to prison for a few years and that’s my main fear, that I won’t be able to take pictures of my food.
    Not that prison food is picture worthy but I’m going to miss that.
    Oh and freedom too.

    It is loaded with very useful techniques. It serves up step-by-step Photoshop recipes, developing customized brushes and how to use them and 3d it's all in here. Every step, and contingency, is covered in minute detail .This is geared toward those folks that are somewhat familiar with using Photoshop and teaches some of the more advanced skills. That being said even beginners will learn more about using Photoshop in a variety of ways.

    I've got my first food shoot in about an hour, so thanks for the tips! It's overcast and raining, I hope the window light is bright enough. 😛

    Speaking of white balance, this video seems overexposed.

    Great, this is Sony commercial.  Like I need help shooting food in restaurants if I have daylight coming through a window.  I need help in places that have very little light and this video does nothing to enlighten us in that regard, therefore it is a waste of time.

    i like these tips cause most food photog tutorials are about people who have the equipment at home and have the time to setup a tripod, accessories,etc…but when you're in a restaurant, you have to be creative.

    1. Unless you are shooting for the restaurant itself, pulling out a giant DSLR at dinner is way too much in literally any eating situation, let alone standing up and hovering over your table with it.
    2. His blog photos were wonderful, however, the images they showed him having just taken were pretty bad. The food just on video looks far better then the still images. Granted he is snap shooting and I'm sure his studio utilizes studio lights, reflectors, and he has all the props needed, but why show the mediocre pictures after talking him up so much. Eesh.

  13. Melody Courtney

    Great tips really needed some good photo advice. I feel more empowered. And will also check out the cameras yay!!

  14. Max

    no necessarily… just adjust your light properly and you are good to go… I shot nice pictures with P&S and customer just cant believed it… LOL!

    so they tell us the camera, but not the lens, aperture or anything else.
