Beautiful Boring Burrito

OK, by now I'm pretty bored with my standard lighting of main light to right of subject and second light behind subject for specular highlights.

This was a beautiful burrito, with wonderful color contrasts, but it was ruined by boring lighting. It looks like something from the menu of a cheap diner.

Burrito - Reprocessed

Lessons Learned

  1. If there are no specular highlights, back lighting doesn't do much
  2. Getting stuck on a particular lighting regime doesn't help you get the best image
  3. A beautiful dish isn't always a beautiful photo
  4. I need more plates, props and ideas to make more interesting photos. I'm working on it.
