So, I searched the forums and I can't find anything about this and I want to know...how do you photograph your cakes so the pictures look professional? Are you creating backdrops? Do you have a studio? Did you buy a $1000 camera? I always feel dorky taking the picture on the kitchen counter, but I don't know how else to do it! If you don't mind sharing your secret...please do tell!

It helps to have a solid background such as a sheet or a drape around your cake to get rid of the "noise" in the pictures. Puts more focus on the cake itself.

Here is a website that someone on this website linked to a while back. Maybe it will help you.

I bought one of those tri-fold presentation boards and set it behind my cakes. It helped a lot! It was a simple fix for now until I can do the nice fabric layouts that I've seen done.
