    Cakes Images

    Hello Donald and greetings to everyone,

    I am back in my kleine studio (Juhuuu..) after few days worked on my family papers, as here in Dubai weekend falls on friday & saturday.
    Anyway, wonder to know whether I could post my cakes images in this thread?

    This image below ware captured a month ago with Sigma lens f2.8 macro with 2 additional lights & a diffuser, inside a room. But I have difficulty to capture cakes outside the room, suppose in the balcony or terrace which count on daylight, I managed to use tripod & diffuser as well, low ISO, but the colour seemed dull to me. Anyone could help?

    Hey Venny are you selling cakes?, it looks very yummy. The colours are nice but i think something missing in regards to your framing...

    This type of scene is always difficult. It sounds easy but is a rather specialised field to get perfect.

    I suspect that part of your problem is that the backgrounds are too similar to the subject material.

    The first photo would probably work fine with a softer background colour and the last one is cropped just a little too tight.

    But this is a specialist subject that I keep well clear off - photographically speaking that is!

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: Cakes Images

    Some nice post-processing edit can make these images pop! I like #2 and #3 due to the interesting use of shallow depth of field. Nice work, Venny.

    And yea, I would have tried different PoV for #2 image or would have straightened the existing image so as to have the pastries at same level.
