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.

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.
