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.
