Another go with different biccies - and some tea in the cup.
Big problem this time is that I've blown out the filling of the biscuits - I won't try again tonight but instead will eat those that are on the plate
This time I moved the light closer to the camera and higher up and over the items - getting better I think!

Number 1 is better, a bit cleaner. I like the contrast of the dark biscuit. Just a thought but perhaps a black coffee/tea would give a better balance.
Just my opinion.
The same occurred to me about black tea after I'd sploshed the milk in I notice now as well that the handle of the cup seems to have disappeared? well it has on this laptop monitor.....
No 1 is straight off the camera - no tweaking on that one
sorry but i preferred yesterdays upload...the cup, saucer and plate were much more well defined against the white....strangely though i can see your handle, but the rim of the cup, saucer and plate have been lost on my laptop...just my opinion tho'
No sorries required All opinions positive or negative happily received It's really the first time I've tried this kind of thing properly so will keep experimenting.
The only downside is that I might have to keep buying biscuits and will suddenly find my jeans don't fit anymore!
Woman kinds great dilemma, biscuits or jeans
Right now it's those four biscuits you can see in the pic - well three biscuits now
Another good pair of images, although have to agree with scrimmy that some elements have disappeared into the background...
I prefer no 2. You lose the plate on no 1 due to not seeing all the shadows. Those biccies look nice - how did they compare to yesterday's JD's ?
Yep - I think I'll move the light back round to the right a bit next time and look at bouncing it onto the background. I've choccy fingers to try next
The Oreos are way nicer than the JDs - I'm a convert
Keep at it, then tell us how its done............Sandy
Nice to see you had a go - thought might be a challenge if you're learning lighting. Actually once you've mastered it, you must indulge in some biscuits with "class". I've only ever seen an Oreo on tv - they're worth trying are they,? don't like sweet jam..
Although oreos are my favorite "store bought" cookie, I preferred your shot from yesterday. It had a much clearer definition of the light and whites.
It's definitely getting there !.....set-up's OK, but all the highlights are too burned out......maybe 2 stops less exposure will give a better
starting image for details & shadows (preferably in RAW mode).....then adjust from there...........??
I tried a mod., but the highlights are lost, & couldn't improve them !
That 'bite' out the one biccy works very well too !!!!
Thanks folks - still a long way off mastering this but I might have another go tonight if I can fit it in (bit busy this evening). I've a pack of choccy fingers that needs opening next
I'll go back to using the Sony R1 for these - far easier to use with the lights as the sync speed with the A350 only goes to 1/100. The R1 will go to about 1/400 so is far more flexible!
Oh Arrietty - they're not bad biscuits at all - a definitely chocolate taste to them and of course the colour is great I'm still a malted milk fan though but they're not very fancy.....
