Food Photography Excercise: A View from Above

The pictures of the overhead shots by Aparna are just awesome... That chocolate bar is just amazing. They really got me excited for this exercise... but the excitement lasted only till I started clicking.... I was so out of my comfort zone.... I actually took an effort to do food styling and understood that I have a long way to go.

I'm not very happy with any of these pictures. I didn't even feel like posting this but then I realized if I don't link in for this exercise, I'm not going to learn... The tips I got in the previous exercises have been very helpful...So here I am trying to pick out the few decent shots to share and learn to make it better....

Grissini - Italian Bread Sticks   Aperture :f/3.5  Shutter Speed : 1/80s   ISO :320

Grissini - Italian Bread Sticks     Aperture :f/3.5  Shutter Speed : 1/80s   ISO :320
Vegan Cashew Yoghurt Starter     Aperture :f/ 6.3  Shutter Speed : 1/15s   ISO :320
Tomato Sambal       Aperture :f/5  Shutter Speed : 1/25s   ISO :320
Tomato Sambal      Aperture :f/4.5  Shutter Speed : 1/30s   ISO :320
The more I look at them, the more I feel like, maybe I could have just moved it a bit or taken the shot from even further up... so many things going through my head... I just am not satisfied at all...


  1. Your shots are not bad at all. I liked the 2nd and 3rd photographs.In the 2nd one, the light is a little strong/ harsh and so a little overexposed around the white cup and the cashews.
    It becomes easier with practise and if you think your shots out.
    Thanks for joining me.

    1. Thank you soooo much for the feedback... The details you point out are really helpful coz at times I'm just so emotionally carried away I can't quite put a finger on what exactly went wrong...
