brunch at pete's



pete's at the basement of hyatt hotel is a cosy italian restaurant and it has one of the best salad bar and soups and pasta. i love the brick wall, checkered table cloth which reminds me of the 70's, but it's a challenge to take pictures with the dim yellow lighting (so if you have any ideas). the ambiance is great though and it feels like a family restaurant 'where everybody knows your name'. happy weekend once again!

  1. adjust white balance? or maybe that didn't work in the past? i would switch to tungsten and if that didn't help custom WB, though i'm not so great at that.

    these black and whites are wonderful though!

  6. oy, dim yellow lighting with no natural light is my worst nightmare for food. converting it to b&w is my only trick. but these pics look great! seems like a cozy place.

  7. B&W works well with these pics. In those lighting situations, I usually need to do some heavy white balance adjustments to the whites in lightroom; playing around with the sliders to find a temperature that works well with both the plates and food.

    kitchu, jacqueline and John, I'm glad I'm not the only one. Thanks for the tips. I think I need practice with the sliders.
