Sometimes I take so many photos that it’s impossible to choose just one.
Each photo offers something different than the others. Even if the change is minuscule, it’s enough to change the photo all together in my eyes. Changing the position is enough to take shadows that were once there and erase them as if they never were.
Note the subtle difference in these two photos. Both are taken from similar angles, however the direction of light has changed. The ridges of the frosting are much more apparent in the top photo, but the bottom photo has a softer overall feel to it.
Above is another example of the light hitting the cake from the side, and below is another example of the light hitting the cake from the front. Lighting can make all the difference!
I tend to take an excess of photos, and then struggle when it comes time to post them. I can never choose just one, I’m a bit of a perfectionist.
Long story short is that I simply needed an excuse to post multiple photos of a single cupcake..because it was that good. It could have been because I hadn’t had a cupcake in months, or because sometimes cupcakes just taste better when someone else bakes them.
Either way, I enjoyed every last crumb of this delicious cupcake. Just one didn’t do!
Q: Which angle of light do you like better on the cupcake?
