Depth of Field Control

Posted in Food Photography by admin on Sep 04, 2013

In food photography, it’s really nice to have the ability to control the depth of field, not just the amount of it, but also the direction… Here’s an example of a food photo, from today’s shoot, where I laid down the plane of focus so that the tops of the mousse’s (should I say meise?) so that the base’s go soft and out of focus, giving the shot a little more interest than it would of otherwise… That’s why I prefer to shoot food with a view camera, because it allows me to control focus, but perspective too.

Just laying…

    Fantastic shot, the controlled depth of field really makes it ‘pop’!
