Chocolate Cake and Blueberries

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.

Notes:
Taken with Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi.
Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II.
Shutter Speed: 1/60s.
Aperture: f/2.2.
ISO 800.
Edited with Adobe Photoshop CS5.
