Up­side-down soup

Is­sue 51 (Oc­to­ber 2015) – Page 72, photo num­ber 3 – Fish Soup: is it me or is this up­side down? It looks far bet­ter if I turn the mag­a­zine through 180 de­grees… but that could be be­cause I use a D610 that came so far down in your En­thu­si­ast SLRs com­par­i­son that I’m think­ing of trad­ing it in for a box with a hole. Wait – Nikon pro­vided a box with the cam­era; now I shall get my money’s worth!

Matt Phillips, via email You’re right Matt, the im­age does feel more nat­u­ral the other way up, per­haps be­cause of the po­si­tion of the bowl and the spoon, and the per­spec­tive on the jar of all­spice berries. We hon­estly haven’t re­versed it, though, it’s ex­actly as the pho­tog­ra­pher sup­plied it.

Don’t forget, it’s not what cam­era you’ve got, it’s what you can do with it that really counts. All the high-tech kit in the world will never beat a great eye for a pho­to­graph.
