    Over the edge - the cutlery gets vain

    We are all vain. We all preen...

    All shot with a Canon 5D Mk2 (that's vanity too!) apart from #3.

    I like them Rob. Number 2 I like best, because of the shadow of the fork and the contrast of the white plate sitting on the black table.

    I like them all Rob, but 'where's the beef'?

    As much as I like what you've done with these, I think I'd like looking at some roast beef, mashed potatoes, succulent green peas, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, ah yes, and a glass of Red to complement the dishes and utensils.

    Hmmmmm.. there may be a reason I need to loose a little weight. Over the edge - the cutlery gets vain

    Vegetarian. But I think you could guess that?

    Viana asked (in a PM) about the lighting for these shots. I used a single studio flash head with a softbox. But to get the light even softer I shot it through a pop-out diffuser screen as well. You can just see the plate at the bottom of the shot. Sorry I couldn't get back further (not enough room in my 'studio'). The set-up creates a very soft even light.

    Thanks for sharing your secrets, Rob.

    Frank has a valid point with the food. However, I might use just one, single perfect pea, one perfect cherry tomato, a grape, fig, etc. What do you think?

    Hi Rob, I'm new here. I love these shots, and thanks so much for the lighting shot (I'm a beginner), it really helps to understand how you got to the finished product.

    Extra shiny, extra glossy and sleek metallic surfaces, exactly the way they should be. I envy these!
