Some Food Shots

I was assisting Jason Lioh on one of his recent assignment, and I came up with a few shots. We were shooting for new menu items for a trendy restaurant. 







We shot the food on a table outside the restaurant, under shade, with a rather even lighting. I used Olympus DSLR E-5, and the 25mm F2.8 pancake lens, which proved to be surprisingly useful. 

I am a food lover. Photographing what I love, is just something I wish I can do more often. I should do this more often, whether it is assignment based, or purely for the fun of it.

  1. Hello Robin,
    Those food images looks delicious and inviting or may I say crying out loud to be eaten. Good lighting with perfect angle really bring out the 3D effect on the food. (Sound like a student haha)
    Love to have a bite. BTW where is the restaurant?
    May you have a peaceful evening.

    2. Jaya One! My office is at DKSH Malaysia and our car park is at Jaya One. I may give it a try next week. My friend's wedding dinner was at Oversea Restaurant, Jaya One. Thank you, Robin. I really hope they will put in 8 prawns in one plate. Yummy!!
      Good night, Robin.

  2. Very nice shots! My favorites are the 3rd and fourth ones. The way the shrimp is piled along with he angle of the sticks make composition a bit tricky.

    1. Hey Eric,
      Precisely, the menu photographs always look so much better than real dish !

  4. Yummy shots ! I discarded my E-PL1 and bought an OMD after reading your awesome in-depth review. I'm pleased to bits with my new toy. Thank you, Robin ! Appreciate if you could offer some insight regarding M Zuiko 75-300mm. Does the auto focus works well(fast and precise) with OMD especially for concert shots ? M. zuiko 45-150 mm works like a charm on my OMD during concerts. I'm thinking of investing in m zuiko 75-300 mm but decided to seek your professional input due to the hefty price tag of the lens. FYI, I used to own a zuiko 300 mm. Didn't work well with E-PL1 and OMD. Very sluggish auto focus, so I sold it off. Thanks in advance.

    1. Hello Missy,
      Thanks for the compliments on my photos and my review works. Glad that you have the OMD !!
      About the tele-lens, if you are happy with the 40-150mm, you do not really need to upgrade from it. Unless you stand too far away and need the reach of 300mm. The AF on 75-300mm is fast and accurate. I do think that the lens is slightly overpriced.
