Do April showers, bring cupcake flowers ?
Hello BLT, glad you are there. No, it is not a sandwich, it’s code…..
As I stated last time, I have changed a few things. I have also changed them back. The biggest change that I forgot to mention is : I have gone totally manual. Amen. Manuel is so much easier for me. I understand it inside and out . Now I can meter for the light, the proper exposure, the aperture of choice, and the shudder of choice. I have switched back, for today’s shots, to my cramped inside “studio”. The sun was too bright, and I was excited to shoot. I also have been switching back and forth from my favorite lens, the Macro, to my 55-200 telephoto.
Today I dolled up some cupcakes, added a bit of Spring, and viola ! Lets look together. I do know that less is more. I am working my way there, but … Lets look at these.I know the lighting isn’t “correct”, but I like it. I like the eye popping cupcake.
I like this lighting also, the one with the Tulip. And now, the final 2. They were taken from above, with my Macro. I also used an artist’s canvas from Blick’s, ( my mothers favorite store), to reflect the light back onto my subject. I wanted to do away with the shadows, and cast a more even and softer light. I think that these are my favorite in this batch of 1000 cupcake shots. No, about 35…hah !
How am I doing ?
