I'm having problems taking pictures of gum paste figures, (with fondant too, but it seems more with gum paste) without washing out all the details. I turned the flash off and helped a bit, but it's still really washing out the details.
Anyone have any tips?
AIm sorry I have no tips but they are sooo adorable!!
AAhhhhh! We have that mold and everyone wants those on christening cakes.
I think they're creepy, and at the shop we call them dead babies or dead butt babies.
I think it has more to do with your camera set-up; but I have found that turning OFF the flash on mine gives me more details when taking those close-up shots. just a thought:)
I turned off the flash, but that gave me shadows..would a "spotlight" for lack of better words, take away the shadows but not wash out the details?
Godot, I agree, it's the big "thing" right now along with the belly/boobs cakes!

I'm a terrible photographer but for 5 min I was trying to learn..,came across this first.
Yes, I agree that a spot light will help with your shadows!
I keep my flash off and use Photoshop to lighten my photos when I have shadows.
