Hello all fellow Chef's out there. I want some feedback on my following photos that I have posted below for critique and suggestions on plating, technique, and what you may like or dislike about the plate. All comments welcome, thanks!

FYI- All items are from scratch, and I mean everything, also plating's done myself as well except for one and its labelled.

Keep photographing your work, I have been building my portfolio for 30 years. It is what every employer has looked at, liked, and, it is what has gotten me the jobs.

Other than the ribs looking a bit dry..... Overall, nice looking stuff, keep it up. Spend some money and get a professional portfolio album, I use a portfolio that a fashion model or actor uses for thier pictures and headshots. It's larger and holds alot if pics.

Enjoy your ride to work, ride a BadAss Motorcycle.
