p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Produce "Stock" - Would like C&C Please


So the subject matter probably isn't the most interesting but I mainly wanted to play around a bit tonight with multiple OCF and experiment a bit with the style of stock photos/catalog type photos with some things I have sitting in the fridge. I'm mainly looking for some feedback about the lighting, WB, and overall look of the photos (good AND bad). I already realize that my white BG isn't exactly white, but for the purpose of these photos I'm ok with that. Thanks very much in advance!

@AuntiPode
Sorry, this is only like the second time I've posted in the C&C section so I didn't realize it was that much slower than the rest of the forum. Thanks for your feedback. I wasn't really planning to use these as stock, I was mostly just experimenting with Multiple OCF since it's something I've never done before... in fact, this is nearly the first time I've used OCF period! Any ideas on how to improve composition of something that is intentionally simple like this? Thanks again!

@RustBug
lol, I'm not from Bowling Green so I have no bias.

Since you are asking essentially about OCF usage, I'd suggest you post over in the lighting & studio forum, where you would likely get the attention of a more targeted group to help you with OCF.

Chuck should be along sometime to en"light"en you with some of his modeling and lighting info, which is good, but there are several others in the L&S forum (Chuck included) that can provide an additionally 'rounded' OCF perspective.

Thank you very much AntiPode for taking the time, I appreciate it. I see what you mean about the composition... did you also use a very slight gradient or are my eyes tricking me? If you did, I like it... its subtle but it does add a bit to it. Thanks again.

RustyBug, I'll try posting these on the L&S forum as you suggest. Thanks!

I did a light vignette and also went over the edges with the burn tool.

Also bumped sharpness and mid-tone contrast as well as building negative space to emulate a less cropped original.
