Today’s assignment for the food photography course I’m taking is:
Depth of Focus using f-stop and ISO. Also explore inclusion of 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.
