Rocky Road cupcakes

Latest photoshoot after another haphazard collaboration with Restaurant Girl where she made gorgeous looking food, styles it and exits the kitchen while I took some shots.

Despite it being relatively unplanned, I ended up taking a lot more time thinking about lighting.

I had my flash reflected to a styrofoam square to the right of the cupcakes to get rid of the shadow cast behind the frame. The entire shoot utilised natural light as the main source of ambient light and I’m quite happy with the slightly Vogue esque look about it.

One thing I would have changed was to shoot this on a longer exposure to see whether it would make a difference.

On a completely different tangent, isn’t Tweezer Times the coolest thing ever? I bumped into it while looking for something else, in short it’s a magazine for Food stylists with plenty of handy hints such as how to make good looking fake ice, styling bacon and other fun articles.
