Today's challenge was photographing my On Request Coffee Cake (recipe post is here). It's a very moist coffee cake that my family loves, so I recommend checking it out.
It's a challenge in food photography to make the food look appetizing. Color should be inviting and make you want to take a bite. Too much detail can make the food look grainy and fake.
Here are my favorite photos from the shoot.
|I like how the lighting turned out here.|
|The eggs turned out pretty good. Not too gelatinous and still has warm tones.|
|I like how the movement was captured, but I think there is too much detail in the flour.|
|Of course, I have to lick the spoon. Yum!|
|I like the composition here...with the almost empty pan that the kids enjoyed.|
I have improved the way I'm "seeing" light since my last food photography shoot. That is definitely improving my photos. I think it's come a long way since the Lasagna shoot.
I welcome feedback from photography buffs and enthusiasts! Let me know if you have any suggestions or any favorite photography sites that have tips!
Like the idea? I would be honored for you to link back to this post!
