Let me tell you something else, too: the food smelled, looked and tasted amazing! I was salivating the whole time! The photos turned out OK, too. Now I can definitely see some things that could be improved and I'm sure that my photography teacher will find even more such things. Still, I'm pleased with the result, especially given the fact that we didn't have much in the way of lighting equipment. See for yourself below, and be gentle with me :)
P.S. Just as an aside, I love my polarizing filter! I never thought it would be so useful, but now I can't go anywhere without it! If you don't already have one, get one!
The restaurant has a wood-burning pizza oven, which is what I photographed here on that last photo.
