I like the subject but think it is a little washed out in that there is no texture to the food because the white plate takes too much away. Perhaps 1/2 a stop may have given it some depth in the food
I agree with trevor the food does look a little bland. I understand that specialist photographers use a little oil sprayed or brushed on to the subject to impart gloss and contrast.( I think its done when the food is cold.)
You have the whole meal nicely in focus, Ernie, and it's certainly nicely presented (the food, that is). I am wondering if you took this at home or in a restaurant. At home, you would be able to consider your background before shooting, eliminating any distractions. I like the inclusion of the salt or pepper pot, but the other floral item pulls the eye. The plain plate and light coloured tablecloth are fine, leaving the meal to take centre stage.
I don't know what you are looking to achieve here Ernie with your food shots. Are you looking to emulate a professional type of shot or are you photographing a plate of food which you are going to eat. As rhol points out the professionals have a lot of tricks up their sleeve to make the food look more appetising but in practice it might not make for good eating
I like the red and green combination for the vegetables as it makes them look fresh and summery. Not so keen on the bacon which looks very fatty and unappetising. It might have been better to put some kind of green herb on the top to continue the summery theme. The chicken needs to be crispy as well. I would ditch the wine glass - glass is horrendously difficult to photograph as it reflects the light, particularly with the kind of crystal glass in your photo which has lots of facets. All you get is a lot of blown out highlights. Something less reflective would be much better. The place mat is suffering from the same burn out issue. Again it might be because the surface is too reflective. Avoid anything shiny. The plate looks good apart from the front which is rather burned out and lacking in detail.
this sort of photography looks easy but it is very difficult in practice and needs a lot of attention to detail to get a professional look. Meantime while you are worrying about these details the food is getting cold if you are looking forward to eating it your self.
