Afternoon snack

By Ahem
I'm experimenting with food styling and photography. This is burrata (cream-filled mozzarella), figs, raspberries, microgreens, white balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Lit with a single soft box.

That looks really tasty. An hors d'oeuvres or a dessert?

This was an hors d'oeuvres, George. With some tweaks, it could easily slide into the dessert category.

A couple of thoughts, though this is definitely not my territory...

It seems as if the plate is angled to the left, rather than levelled, which unsettles my eye slightly. And the shadow under the plate maybe needs a bit more breathing space.

But the arrangement and lighting are delightful: unobtrusive and rather beautiful.

You are correct on both accounts, John. I totally agree that the crop may be too tight for the entire plate. I guess symmetry in this type of imagery is very important. I'll be more cognizant of that in the future. Thank you for lending your critical eye(s) and sharing your expertise.

Cheers, Hem.

And thank you for sharing a healthy and delicious snack. Has my MacVitie's Chocolate Digestives and glass of milk neatly beaten...
