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.
