    SG, that looks like it's sitting in front of me on the table!

    Can I ask you some questions?

    Do you use a flash?
    If not, how do you light your photos?
    Is this one taken on the micro setting? I find that gets a greenish tinge when I try it.
    What sort of light is there in the rest of the room?
    Do you use a tri-pod?
    What do you set your camera on? I just put mine on Auto and hope for the best!
    How long will Andrew wait whilst you photograph all your yummy food icon_wink.gif ?

    I hope you don't mind me picking your brain, but I would love my photos to look like this one.

    Jan, are you using a digital camera?

    I don't use a flash, because I find it's too harsh. It tends to either wash out pictures at such a close range or create lots of shadows.

    I use natural lighting, from a window in my kitchen and also usually turn on the ceiling lights and little lights under the cupboards.

    I don't often use the micro setting. No tri-pod.

    What I do use a lot to touch things up is photoshop. Now, I'm no expert, but this picture, for example, I used its auto-adjust button for contrast and levels. That helps a lot. I also used the "sharpen" filter to bring out the texture of the sorbet. I can post the before and after for you, if you like. I use photoshop to adjust levels and contrast on nearly every picture.

    Thanks for the info SG, now I have to go back to my camera book (yes, it's a digital) and read up some more. Yes, and like Dorothy says below, I'd like to see the before picture.

    Hi Sackvillegirl
    It would be interesting to see the before photo, I would love to see it, if you don't mind. I'm doing pretty much the same as you with each picture, alaways the auto button first, sometimes I stop there, others I fiddle with more, some times it works out well other times not so well. I use the macro a lot, and I've noticed, like you say, when my flash accidently didn't work, it made for a more defined picture, much more contrast, but I did have to brighten it. I've been staying away from the "sharpen", it seems to make everything too grainy, but yours is beautiful icon_exclaim.gif
