    I think the lighting and WB are good, but sometimes I'm a little confused about what the subject is. Are you shooting the product itself (crackers, drink mix, jars, etc) or the displays?

    If the focus is supposed to be on the product itself, I think you have some of the displays turned a little too far to the side (the first Larzaroni shot, the Kitchen of India shot, the Arizona shot, etc). My eyes keep going back and forth between the writing on the side of the display and the product inside the display, and it's kinda difficult to tell really what the product is. Contrast this with the Kavli shot (2nd row 2nd column) where the focus is more on the product instead of the display stand.

    The displays are the subject, not the product. That's why they were like that. I tried to get all of the front and side detail of the displays into the image.

    The ones like the Kavli shot where there was no side detail, I pulled it a little closer to front view to get more of the signage on the front in the frame...

    Got it, makes more sense then. That's why I started my post with "If the focus is supposed to be on the product"...

    Carry on :o

    Looks good. Pretty much a basic product shoot. :)

    i think it's just personal preference, but i prefer the shots where the display is angling toward me, not away from me. For example, the first few shots are angling the "wrong way" in my opinion :dunno:

    it's true son. Walking away from the product vs. walking toward it.

    Look at the first photo and then look at the 15th photo. In my opinion, i prefer the way #15 is angled than #1

    whatever, I said it was personal preference :fawk:

    Ok... I'll try and "walk" you through this. Explain what makes it "walking away" versus "walking toward"...and as your process that nugget....lean to the left.....then lean to the right. And then think about where the actual photo is located on your screen relating to it's centerline. Consider also that you have no idea WHERE it will be used on the page, relating the viewers eye position.

    Now process it.
