EXPERT INSIGHT ROOM TO BREATHE
Olly says... Composition depends on what’s in your scene and what you want to focus on. Here we focused on the interesting parts of the bread – the cracking crusty top. Don’t bring the subject too close to the edge of the frame. If you leave some area around the food to let it breathe, this will increase your cropping options in post-production. If you’re too close, move back and recompose. Angling the bread gives you more artistic three-dimensional look, and helps make shadows more pronounced. You can also show more of the produce than if you shoot straight on.
