Food Photography, Day 4

Today’s assignment for the food photography course I’m taking is:

Depth of Focus using f-stop and ISO. Also explore inclusion ofย  backgrounds for your photo’s subject. The f-stop on these shots range from 5 to 22, the higher the f-stop the more focused the background is. For a blurred background, reduce the f-stop to a lower number. Adjusting the ISO also allows you to lower the f-stop.

I like the top left photo best because Peder is blurred into the background, and it adds a suggestion of activity and life to an otherwise still photograph.

    I much prefer a person in the background to an empty chair!

      The table wasn’t a perfect choice, too busy, so I’m on the hunt for props now!
