I don’t think I’ve ever photographed food at this sort of an angle, but it somehow worked. The shallow depth of field keeps the eyes on what’s important: the subject simply because there wasn’t much else that I could do to isolate the background. It also reminds me of why I love Canon’s cheapest lens: its bokeh is great for melting backgrounds. Also it’s much sharper than the kit lens that originally came with my camera. Awesome.
