Food stuff photography. (post no.120) -Fried bread and curd.

If u are a hardcore photographer and keeps interest in many things, Food photography may be one of ur choice. There is no dearth of subjects, if u visit regularly some hotels, restaurants or may be a good cook urself. There are varied kind of arrangements of the food u choose. However u have to be cautious of the background, the only distracting thing in food photography. The simple/plane the best, since the attention of the viewer will be on the food stuff rather than other things.
 --Many photographers use many objects on which to place the plate but they are not distracting and cover very limited space, in order to highlight the main object i.e. the dish......There is a good word 'decoration'. That too be matching with the taste of the food staff, sour or sweet and shd be small in quantity placed at less important/vacant places so the beauty of the picture is enhanced.
--In the above pic, beside 'dhania' leaves and tomato, onion, green chilli, lemon stc can be added but to minimum possible.

Angles in photography. (post no.119).

It is said by experts - TRY AS MANY UNUSUAL ANGLES as u probably can. From lying down on the floor to shooting top angles.

2. However, subject's position makes it deciding which angle u can use for the best output from a picture.
Besides, insisting on an angle may not be solution.....Right at the site of shooting, u shd have sufficient time to change ur positions for angles and/or may ask the person, place subject, on whom u can try different angles. As always, subjects are varied, many so powerful, demanding a solo position to shoot them from that particular angle.

3. For example, I take here Mumbai Bandra sealink bridge......There is a straight angle when u stand on the bridge, since traffic will not allow u to get changed to the premeditated angle. So u are constrained. However, when the traffic slows down, the angle u can approach is by sitting on ur legs....That will immediately take u to a different look from THAT LOW ANGLE, which was thus not possible.

4. Using ultra wide angle or wide angle lenses will give a more coverage and depth in the oncoming traffic, side of bridge, the view of sea, sky, clouds (if any), in night, reflection of lighting  in the sea.
ANGLES  greatly relate to lenses as well......................continue
