The finer things

NPhoto - - The Photo Apprentice -

If your food has some in­ter­est­ing tex­tures, use a macro lens to get in re­ally close. Don’t be afraid to fill the frame with the de­tail – some­times the tasti­est food pho­to­graphs are close-up shots. Cap­tur­ing the de­tail of this bread makes your mouth wa­ter; you can al­most hear the crust crack­ing. Don’t for­get, the closer you get, the shal­lower your depth of field be­comes (shal­low depth of field is in­her­ent in all macro pho­tog­ra­phy), so you ei­ther have to change com­po­si­tion so that as much as pos­si­ble is on the plane fo­cus, or nar­row your aper­ture to in­crease the depth of field.
