Tonight’s lesson is about framing inside of the camera. This is not really a new concept, I always do this. Rarely do I crop during PP unless I just couldn’t get close while shooting. What I liked about this assignment though was the chance to not care so much about what the food was and really focus on the layout of the photo.
It was nice to think about the composition objectively. Not worry about making the food look good to show off a recipe, but to just think about how this bowl of cereal could look its best. Maybe that sounds silly now that I see it written out. But the process in my head felt different.
It helps too that I’m not worried about my dinner getting cold while I try to get a good photo!
