Having a cupcake is now a special treat these days. My goal is to cut back on sugar tremendously. So tremendous I will not be having anything sweet on Valentine. No, don’t feel sorry for me. It’s a health choice I made. To know me, is to know how much sugar I can eat.
I took one bite into my cupcake and place it back onto the plate . The way it fell over I thought it looked beautiful. My artistic eyes were speaking. I’m always trying to find the beauty in everything. I raced to get my camera and shot a few frames. This is the closet to what it looked like in my head.
After the hype was over, I began to ponder how in the world food stylist make food look so yummy. The easiest part is the subject doesn’t talk. I tried to make the white space of the dish useful, by keeping the cake liner in place. I used the thrifty 50 to bring in the light, right before dusk. There was a reflector on the camera right and window light on the left.
Food photography takes practice and patience. This is an example of a shot that isn’t too bad, but certainly can use some improvement. It looked a lot better in my head.
