Photos were taken while I was chilling out at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. As you can see, these photos are filled yellow/orange cast that washes over the entire photos. Blah!
The problem is an overly yellow/orange cast does not work too well with food. Dark food photos are depressing and unappetizing. Yellow/orange or blue cast food photos look terrible. Imagine blue bacon.
I was in a place where natural light was unavailable. I didn't want to use flash because - “Never use a flash when taking food photo as it flattens everything out,” says photographer John Kernick.
Having just switched from a point-and-shoot camera, the many functions of the DSLR had me very confused and I feel intimidated by all the settings and buttons on the camera.
When Ralph arrived, he taught me how to adjust the ISO and the white balance on the camera.
Blah to bam!
Okay, maybe not ‘bam!’ yet, but that's much better!
However, I've forgotten all of what he had taught me.
Oh well, the only way to get better at taking photos is just to keep on taking photos. I'm still learning (as always).
