Thank you @Jo dunn @Arthur vdH @boo @latif @Damian Green @Mark Harvey for taking the time to comment and for the tips on creating more lighting in the room and the editing it’s appreciated. It’s the dining room that’s dark the kitchen has more lighting so will be playing around with that but your comments has made me realise I need extra lighting in there. A little project to work on. Nice example photos @Mark Harvey Thank you everyone 🙏😊💞

Yes, of course, editing can improve a lot on the original photo @traceyross. But this, I guess you know already and you do it, too, i presume. If not, your photos wouldn’t be as good as they are!!!

try sticking the subject under the hob light with no flash. but essentially you'll have to edit the photo to replace the light contrast and brightness.

I have an android phone which has quite good editing facilities, I think there's similar on an iPhone

if you look at my profile there's a more detailed explanation.

good luck @traceyross 📸😍

Agreed @traceyross your pics are awesome. If you want to keep the mood you can setup a desk lamp or candles to get the lighting right, or what I have to do is shoot in my fav part of the kitchen just before they go out! Lighting in my dinning room is pants!! Have a play with editing the pics after- that extra little effort can make massive difference xx

Very good tips from boo. Normally, I follow Arthur’s tip, very simple, but effective. Having said this, I find your photos very good @traceyross.

The light is always the key for a good photo! Too less or too much is not good. Best results with a decent day light (for non professionals that we are) without shades. Or in the evening, when even the iPhone camera refuses a good photo, you add a spot, halogen or LED.
Furthermore, you have very good possibilities with your iPhone to edit your photos (cut/light/colour). Or even more, there are additional Apps for editing photos on the market. @traceyross

The simplest tip: turn on a light. That’s what I do. Try to avoid using flash.
