    Macro Using Natural Light. Since its an overcast sky, the sun wont be disturbing the light much. So I tried.

    Not so easy really, need a Tripod actully. I had to turn to TaV mode for help.

    Nice ones, almost no shadow. What time did you shoot this? It seems quite bright to get 1/180 at f8 and ISO200.

    Actually, it wasnt in my intention of Macro. haha. I only bring Primes out for walk2 to heal my aching body due to flu!

    Then see the sky very overcast with no sun in sight, and the insect kept popping out here n there. Lucky my samsung is with me.

    Thanks for the opinion bro.

    The 2nd pic works better when viewed at full res. Was thinking of constructing a story or collage. Pity I was more busy browsing rather than shooting.

    Anyway, I tried 6:4 aspect instead and got a tighter composition. Trying to colour/pattern coordinate as best as I can. Less of telling a story but more of unconventional composition. (or abstract as some of you call it)

    Sorry, but #1 is still ok (the connecting pavement), but imho they are still not that 'strong' in elements that tie them together as well as having maybe contrasting/flowing elements in the 2 shots that I see on some diptych.

    something like theses

    This is quite interesting, diptych/triptych is really very demanding on composition.

    Thanks for the insight JK... and Salleh and Brian.

    I understand that diptych and its variations has to tie together like a story or act as a comparative study. (as a rule) But I'm looking at more of a collage style. Imperfect alignment but with a "flow" to it. Kinda hard to explain in words...

    so I'll show an example.

    Then again, I didn't really set out to capture proper diptych photos back then. Just decided to post process them in a different manner to give 'em a bit more "pop". Maybe I'll make it a project for the next outing...

    I read in a magazine for Food Photography there is two type of rule. The Common Rule of 3rd or the Spiral.

    The First pic & 2nd represent the rule of 3rd

    While the 50mm cropped Represent the spiral.

    So both is ok for me.

    Thanks bro for your comments.
    So which pic you prefer #1 or #2 for the depth of field?

    Some time ago I posted some food pics (in another forum) at very low angle & was commented higher angle better, but I prefer shallow depth of field that's why choose low angle. Later I googled & found there's actually no fixed rule on which angle
    It depends on situation & the type of food, for eg a cup of ice cream it's nicer to take at level (zero degree).
    The pics will be better to include a pair of chopsticks.

    Between #1 and #2, I choose #2. But actually I think #3 is best. I like my food shots composed tightly, looks like the dish is right in front of me...
    My photos - see just some or all of it =)

    Composing using the golden ratio spiral is usually extremely hard, but its a little easier with food when its served on nice round or oval dishes, the edge of the dish will act as one of the curves.

    An example of what I am talking about
