    I brought my speedlight and a soft box filter but it was still too harsh. In the end I changed into a 35mm f1.4 lens to take these photos. How can one eliminate hot spots on food (strong jarring or highly reflective spots on oil puddles? Keep in mind I am blogging and not engaged to do a commercial food photography so no extra lightings were allowed as it disturbs other diners.

    There are foods out there that have an almost mythical status among diners and, because of that, they carry a huge premium, costing us hundreds (sometimes even thousands) of dollars just to have the pleasure of experiencing them.

    Black Truffles: Truffles are tubers and develop thanks to a symbiotic relationship with the trees to whose roots they cling. They draw water to the trees and, in return, take nutrients from them as they grow. For the truffle to flourish, so must the tree.

    It is an unsure business, and that means the numbers of truffles harvested each year can vary enormously. The best truffles will always carry a high price tag, but in years of low yield, that price tag can double or triple.

    Although it is possible to farm black truffles successfully, the very best examples depend on unique conditions to thrive. These conditions are very difficult to replicate, and many gourmands argue that “farmed” versions are not a match on their wild counterparts.

    Hi gcyhakjj,

    Thank you for your kind comment :)

    Food like any genre does have a hero or main subject and that's where i focus after determining it. Where a table of several items are displayed, i try to move the dishes so that the shape and colour (of food) compliment each other instead of competing. I particularly like "action" at table where food is overflowing so as to bring away the attention of the "messy-ness" and highlight a different message that is the sharing, bonding and enjoyment of food. The two key points [in food photography is to have a purpose/direction when taking photos. I am no longer simply taking] are 1) photos “of” food but at appropriate times, 2) photos “about” the dish I blog.

    If you don't mind reading a post I blogged on how I started food photography, click here :  http://thebondingtool.com/2013/06/27/igniting-a-passion-a-roy-thai/

    For Gary :)

    I'm posting this on my blog for you so you can always return. Check out my next blog post. There's more detailed information :)

    Most of all, enjoy the food after taking the photos :D

    Always determine the message you want to convey to those seeing your photos.

    What is the purpose, the storyboard so to speak, that will be the key point to whether you should take photos "of" food (for example product shoot, marketing purposes) or photos "about" food (for example a family dinner or events for keepsake of memories).

    I particularly like "action" at table where food is overflowing so as to bring away the attentiion of the "messy-ness" and highlight a different message that is the sharing, bonding and enjoyment of food.

    Long Bar is the birthplace of The Singapore Sling, which is a South-East Asian cocktail. This long drink was developed sometime before 1915 by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel Singapore. It was initially called the gin sling, a sling was originally an American drink composed of spirit and water, sweetened and flavored. Unfortunately, I do not like Singapore Sling and had opted for Chardonnay instead and my friend had a Gunner cocktail. We shared some bar food as shown below:
