In general, purpose of each type of food photography is to make food look tempting and irresistible. Depending on how the photograph will be used, there are more details that should be understood – the lighting requirement, the technical knowledge and related knowledge.

    This is my first time visiting this blog and I like what I see.
    I am looking for some introductory help. I work for a i Product Development for a restaurant chain. I am a chef by trade and an amateur photographer at heart. We employ both food stylist and professional photographers for our menu images and POP matrials. When we conduct concept sorts, we take pictures in house of food that we would like to gain consumer feedback on prior to putting all of iur resources into development. I am looking to put together a Photo Booth type of set-up that will give us consistency in lighting, focus and depth of field.
    What equipment as camera and or lighting kits would you reccomend.
    Also are there any photographers portfolios you would reccomend I look at for inspiration?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • You’re so interesting! I don’t believe I’ve read a single thing like that before. So good to discover another person with some genuine thoughts on this topic. Seriously.. thanks for starting this up. This site is one thing that is needed on the web, someone with some originality!

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • This is a topic that’s close to my heart… Take care! Where are your contact details though?

  • Everything is very open with a very clear clarification of the challenges. It was truly informative. Your website is useful. Thank you for sharing!

  • Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It will always be helpful to read articles from other writers and practice something from other websites.

  • I would like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this blog. I am hoping to view the same high-grade blog posts from you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has inspired me to get my very own blog now 😉

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the same comment. Is there an easy method you can remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!

  • Right here is the perfect web site for anybody who really wants to understand this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that’s been discussed for ages. Great stuff, just great!

  • You need to be a part of a contest for one of the best blogs online. I will recommend this blog!

  • Very good blog post. I definitely love this website. Stick with it!

  • I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Outstanding work!

  • I could not resist commenting. Very well written!

  • It’s very fantastic service…It is the best place for information of all singapore hotels..

  • Eventually, after spending many hours on the internet at past
    We’ve discovered anyone that certainly does know very well what they’re
    talking about thank you very much fantastic article.

  • The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesn’t disappoint me as much as this particular one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, nonetheless I actually believed you would have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you can fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • Great information. Lucky me I discovered your blog by accident (stumbleupon). I have book-marked it for later!

  • Although websites we backlink to beneath are considerably not connected to ours, we feel they are essentially really worth a go via, so have a look.

  • I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I came across this during my search for something concerning this.

  • Heya i’m for the first time here. I came across this board and I find It really useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back and aid others like you aided me.
