I would like to thank everyone who attended July 29th Studio Food Photography Workshop at Toronto Photography Workshops and Lessons meetup group! It was a great class.
Just a quick recap of was was discussed and practiced during the workshop:
- Generally for any type of macro or close-up photography aperture range could be anywhere from f 2.8 to f 11, depending on how much detail needs to be in focus
- For shots with single objects, focus generally needs to be on the front of the object, for shots with multiple objects, focus may vary
- Tripod is necessary for batch shooting, however, with shutter speeds over 1/50 s it is better to shoot of hand – this provides better opportunity to change angles, focal points, etc.
