Remember those rushed school mornings - jumping downstairs after the 5th or 6th call from your mum or dad. Phil .. breakfast ! PHIL .. BREAKFAST !!! PHILIP !! GET DOWN HERE AND EAT YOUR BREAKFAST RIGHT THIS MINUTE !!! I was always late and running and there was only time for a quick bowl of Shreddies or Sugar puffs. Back in the day !
Now we have time and every morning is like a Saturday or Sunday. Slow and easy. Wander down when you like - take your time. I bet you haven't even been shouted at yet !
With all this leisure you'll have time to a) make sure you have a nice breakfast b) maybe even make it yourself - and for your mum and dad as well and c) photograph it.
Kitchen tables are bright and the perfect spot for this kind of assignment. or you might be in the garden it it's warm enough. Even better.
Professional food shots are often taken from above - looking straight down onto the plate or bowl. Try this.
Fill the frame. Zoom in a little if you need to. Take more than one picture and review to make sure it's sharp.
