"Next time, try to include props such as utensils, napkins, drinks, side dishes, etc to communicate size and proportion. Implementing more propping in the frame will allow images to look less static and give diners more perspective. Feel free to incorporate propping into the hero shot, too."

"1. Please be mindful of your white balance. If you are dealing with tungsten or mixed lighting, please set a custom white balance in your camera. If you cannot do this, please make sure you are balancing properly in post-production. Food tends to look unappetizing with an orange cast. 2. Next time, try to include props such as utensils, napkins, drinks, side dishes, etc to communicate size and proportion. Implementing more propping in the frame will allow images to look less static and give diners more perspective. 3. You can crop in tighter on the hero shot. We want more of the frame to be filled with food. Don't feel like you need to showcase the whole dish in the hero shot."
