We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Some of the technical aspects that can all limit the usefulness of a file are: 

-Flat/dull colors 
-Direct on-camera flash and/or flash fall-off (bright subject, dark background) 
-Harsh lighting with blown-out highlights that lack details and/or distracting shadows 
- Distracting lens flares 
-Incorrect white balance

Looks tasty but not sharp. Camera shake maby? Why so shallow depth of field?

Thx for the feedback.


Honestly, I'm just starting... I'm still searching the best light set up in my house. Even though I put extra lighting, cam shake occurs regularly. Need a decent tripod.


Oh by the way, it was tasty

>>>  Need a decent tripod.


For these types of studio shot, hand held shots will seldom be OK - if you havent got a tripod, then substitute a pile of books as a firm platform - then you can increase the exposure to give more depth of field... 


I dont know your light source, but if it is not flash or the sun, then look at the 'custom white balance' options on your camera?


Good Luck & Regards

Not in focus, background not white, etc.

There are plenty of examples on the internet on how to do isolated images correctly. You don't need a tripod. You need enough light and a fast enough shutter speed. I rarely use a tripod, unless the object needs to emit light, like a phone or something.

Well, you don't need a tripod for isolation if you are using flash, but they are useful for food shots, so you can precisesly control the camera position and the angle of the food items etc in shot.

Also to avoid camera shaking even on tripod you can use the timer (2s or 10s) to shutter release or buy a remote control. ;0)

Can also use a lens with VR/IS/OS (image stabilisation, vibration reduction etc)
