I was having a coffee…

…when I decided a cheesecake would be good. So I bought a piece.  And shot it.

35 mm lens, f/1.4, 1/60th second at 100 ISO. You see what those nice fast lenses can do? I cropped a tiny bit of light from the top – no other adjustments.

The moral of this post:

  • Be ready to shoot your food.
  • Fast prime lenses are good: available light works.
  • You do not always need flash.
  • Low ISO is good.
  • Wide open is good: selective focus is great.
  • A wide angle lens can be used to shoot a macro food shot!

Exhaustion prevents me from working more tonight – but more soon.

  1. The challenge is to carry around fast lens and DSLR! But I guess if someone (like me and many other amateurs) wants to progress it is price to pay!
