I love everything about #1. Excellent
Thanks! All the other shots are ok but I feel like that specific one with the Olympus is the best from that day. We mounted a Manfrotto 190 on a table, flipped the head tube and shot from there remotely with an iPad.
That was the most enjoyable moment of the morning. No need to squint through the viewfinder or check on a small screen if everything was ok. Just pure freedom to compose and shoot. The app is clumsy and very limited in scope, but at least it works for liveview, settings and remote shutter.
Controlling reflections was a real pain, but fun. I wouldn't mind doing this again now that I have more experience.
And now for a laugh, a couple of failed shots!
Here's the "don't use shallow dof when you need everything in focus":
And this is "the most flat shot of mozzarella cheese":
