View Full Version : Bread and butter

The appetizer at a restaraunt in Alaska!
Also, with my camera I tend to have a lot of "fuzzy" or "grainy" looking pictures.. Could anyone tell me why? I'm new to photography so I don't get that haha.

So the very first thing my eye connected in this one is waviness in the folds of bread and the same in the butter; destined to be united and for you to eat.
Also some very nice contrasting geometric elements in this image.

Eggs (soft boiled or over easy)....the 1st thing that came to mind......to partner with the bread.....nice shot.

Nice shot,but they didn't overdo the presentation did they-apart from the butter :D
WRT to grainy pictures: It could be that you're using a high ISO to get enough shutter speed in low light conditions.(The higher the ISO the greater its ability to use available light and hence a faster shutter).You should be aiming to have a minimum of 1/125th shutter speed to avoid camera shake.
Sometimes grain can be interesting and add texture to shots but if it bothers you(and it sounds like it does) you can reduce the noise in post processing depending on which package you use.
Normally,on a bright sunny day ISO 100 should be the right one and indoors on a dark and dismal day you might have to go as high as ISO 800. To get detail in really dark places some cameras go as high as ISO 3200.Some cameras are better at dealing with grain than others.

Looks delicious! Did you bake the bread?

Like Kairn said, your noise issue is most likely due to the ISO in your camera being up to high. What camera body/lens did you use for this shot, and what were your settings?
Oh I almost forgot!... I really like the cracks or flaky crust on the bread. You can really see the texture. Great job on some interesting composition! Good job!

Thank yall again...
Kiasmum, thank you for the helpful tips, hopefully I will pay closer attention to it, but right then and there, everyone wanted to dig in! So I was trying to be quick..
Bishop, no I did not! It was at a restaraunt in Alaska! I wish I could cook like that though :)
Klown, I wish I could tell you, but since I'm pretty new to photography, and I currently don't have my camera with me, I wouldn't be able to say off the top of my head. That's something I'll have to learn and pay closer attention to.. I know how to change all of that, just need to known when too :)

If you don't like the grainy stuff, try a noise reduction program. NeatImage has a very usable trial version that you can use forever if you like (the purchased program has some very nice additional features you might want).
Try it and see if that helps.
I like your shot. The texture of the bread makes me want to grab a slice and spread it with butter.
