Very true, but in this case he's not selling anything.

Yes, but in this case he's "selling" the recipe for that strawberry ice cream on his food blog. If you expect people to try a recipe and you show them the result of that recipe in a photograph, you can't use something fake like Crisco or mashed potatoes. People who will try that recipe will want to see what the real product looks like.

Thanks. I've been here a long time, now. It's a good forum. Some of the posters in this particular part of it are really good, and way better than I am.

dkcoats, Yes faking it would be easier. However, the pics are all for a food blog my wife and I do. They are also truly eatable and as long as something hasn't been under the lights too long while I try to sort out how to get a pic, we eat whatever is in the pics. Using food you'll really it definitely makes it harder to get good pics.

I post the pics here to get feedback. That feedback helps me do better next time. I am happy to get positive feedback, but I also really appreciate critics that tell me what to do differently or how to do it better.

What we do, when we have to shoot the real thing, is make a dozen or more scoops. Place them on metal trays covered with parchment paper and then re-freeze them for several hours before we try to photograph them. If your freezer isn't cold enough, a cooler with blocks of dry ice in the bottom works well.

Congratulations on your new Tilt and shift lens! As I've told Brian again and again, do yourself a favor and get a copy of Capture One Pro 7 for tethered shooting. You'll love that "Focus Mask" feature!
