Foods to Photograph

Foods Photography St Louis

I love photographing foods of anything.   There are so many creative options but I especially love shallow depth of field.

Shallow depth of field :

allows parts of the image to have a lovely blurry feel.  This allows the focus to fall on the part of the image you want the eyes to stay on.  Shallow depth of field can only be achieved with high quality lenses that can shoot at 2.8 or larger.  Cheaper lenses cannot go beyond 3.2 at best and then the images are soft.  Most mid priced lenses are sharp at 4 or 5.6f.

The beauty of a L series Canon lens or Nikon V series lenses is that they stay sharp even at f1.2.  You pay a premium –  $2500 vs $800-  for the ability to photograph in any number os conditions.
