Deranged Food Photography Contest - Fiddled with Food Fotos
The rice is blue because of an extract taken from the flower.
Drad na talay with lots of pepper
Guess who ordered the chips!
Barbeques on every street corner.
Khao Tom Khun for breakfast...
I just had the fruit, croissants and toast.
Spicy Som Tam
Ovaltine Bingsu...definitely NOT spicy!
And after all that Thai food which I have to confess, I am not a fan of. A bit of English Pub grub!
The last time I posted in @photography-lovers was when I asked for, and got some brilliant help and advice on my night-time aircraft photos.
I took on board everyone's advice and suggestions of Apps to use and so decided to give @derangedvision's photography contest a spin this week. This week's subject is food, and I'm in Thailand where it is a legal requirement to take a photo of your food before putting spoon-to-mouth. This I figure, is because when you end up violently puking after eating some dodgy street food, you will be able to look back and see what made you ill...
Anyway, the pics were all taken on my old Mi Note 9 which is a fairly cheap phone but does take reasonable photos. When I see all the professional and semi-pro photos in the photo communities, they are often vivid, bright and sharp and no matter how much fiddling, there is no way you can reproduce the quality that a decent camera produces. The photos on my phone aren't sharp enough and there seems to be a lot of 'noise' especially when you crop and zoom.
The pictures here were fiddled with on Google photos as well as giving Snapseed, thanks to Mac for that and IrfanView, thanks to @thomasthewolf for that suggestion. I have to say though, I didn't really know what I was doing!
I also have another question for the talented ones out there, if I may. What are your thoughts on shadows? When I take a picture of a dish on a table, I get shadows. If you take photos more professionally, do you use some sort of flash or light to 'fill in'? What do you consider the best results?
Thanks to @derangedvision and @liketu and good luck to everyone joining in. Contests are such a great way to create engagement and have a bit of fun.
