This is our last newsletter for the “straight on” challenge, where I talk about 90° camera angle or flat lay in food photography.

This angle has become very popular in the last period.

– it’s the best angle to practice your skills in compositions, but it’s also the most challenging one for this reason;
– it’s the best angle for shooting with mobile, because of its wide-angle lens,
– this angle is the best when it comes to storytelling.

We discuss what kind of foods works perfectly with this angle and I also share what you have to pay attention to when using this angle.

I created this images as a result of this exercise:
