Celeste Heiter's Adventures in Asian Food & Film

Now THAT’s What I’m Talking About

After last week’s focus on the basics, I’ve finally moved on to my digital SLR camera’s more advanced features and have begun adding food to my compositions.

For today’s photo, I set it to the Aperture Value mode and adjusted the f-stop down to 3.5 to give the photo its sharp foreground and softly focused background. With the exception of a little cropping, I used no no Photo-Shopping or other enhancements.

The photo turned out just as I’d envisioned it, which means that I’m one step closer to mastering my camera’s many complex digital features.
