Gra ph food

NPhoto - - Lead Feature -

For many trav­ellers food and, of course, drink are among the ma­jor rea­sons for trav­el­ling. Pho­to­graph food when­ever you find it, but try to shoot cre­atively, avoid­ing the sort of record shots you find on the menu of a greasy spoon cafe. As with all pho­tog­ra­phy, choose an an­gle that will show a sig­nif­i­cant back­ground for con­text, and use a wide aper­ture to give a shal­low depth of field to ren­der the back­ground out of fo­cus. Pho­to­graph in­gre­di­ents be­fore they are cooked, and al­ways try to charm your way into the kitchen in tra­di­tional restau­rants. Not only can you be re­warded with great shots of the cooking, you will get a good idea of the like­li­hood of con­tract­ing food poi­son­ing. Street food is a fan­tas­tic thing to eat, and much eas­ier to pho­to­graph, as ev­ery­thing is cooked and pre­pared in front of you. Shoot a close-up food shot to be­gin with, and then go for an ac­tion por­trait of the per­son do­ing the cooking.
