I have seen several threads in the past about taking decent pictures. I am not a photographer in any stretch of the imagination, but I have found a better way in recent months to take pictures of my cakes. Tonight while photographing one, I decided to take pictures of my process and put together a little mini tutorial for anyone who may be interested. Since we have so many new members daily, maybe it will help someone.

It isn't professional, but makes them look a little nicer nonetheless. Of course it also disguises any clutter left from the decorating mayhem!

The pictures are explained in their captions.

Thank you! So simple and much easier than editing out the background later!

BTW - is that cradle edible? If so - awesome!

Oh no...you are not the only one. You and I are in the majority on that one. From where I stood to take the picture, my back is to the kitchen and it is a disaster. I'm trying to juggle my laptop and dishes during commercial breaks. thumbs_up.gif

I do the same thing but I use a white satin piece of bridal material I bought. But they have a new item in Brookstone that you can buy. Its a mini studio with a collapsable backdrop and mini lights and a tripod for your digital camera. It retails for $60 I think. I was hoping I would get it from Santa but apparently I was a bad girl this year! icon_sad.gif
