Thats pretty much my question - how do you take a great pic of your cake. Should I use a flash? Should I make my own "studio" with a back drop?
so my cake pics used to look horrible, I hate them. My DH built me a light box and a new camera...they look soooo much better now
you can buy a light box but it was easy to make for him...just PVC pipe, a white sheet and some lights, then I add paper from a roll usually white or black as the back drop
Homemade lightbox...that's my next project!
. . . might find this thread helpful . . .
the other thread is amazing... no guess work now.
Here's another thread about it. This is how I do it because I'm too cheap to buy a photo box.
I've got a cake photography tutorial on my tutorials website here:
Ive just started using a black backdrop, black material over a cardboard box.
I think my photos are better, theres more focus on the cake!
