i love your photos and i want to know how to get such photos like yours! also with editing. how did you get the bokeh kinda effect on the background on this photo? (on the picture "33/53 weeks")

Thank you! I used my 50mm lens which has an aperture of 1.8. The lower the number of your aperture, the more bokeh your lens will produce. Usually a background with trees will give out that kind of bokeh because light passes through the empty spaces of the leaves!

I usually have like a default set of angles I use all the time in my head for food and portrait photography. The key to food photography is to try all angles! I think that’s why food photographers get paid so much (since they have to take a lot of shots to get the perfect angle). For portraits, i think it depends who your model is and what you’re shooting for!

Which lens do you prefer using? Your 50mm or kit?

Depends what I’m doing! I love using my 50mm for portraits and food (mostly everyday stuff) because of the 1.8 aperture. When I’m taking a selfie (HAHAHA) in my little make shift studio at home or for a photobooth, I use my kit lens!
