photo of the week: Spring wedding cake

Posted by carlotta on Friday April 8th, 2016 at 7:46am

As we have finally reached Spring, and with wedding season approaching, I thought I would give you a bright, colourful photograph of a wedding cake in the sunshine. This is one of many cakes I spent a day photographing in the Surrey countryside.

Studio and product photography is so different from much of what I do because each shot must be set up from scratch. Instead of shooting what I find unfolding in front of my camera, I must create the scene I want to photograph. Of course the key element of light remains the same, for this is what modulates the subject and describes its texture and substance. In studio work, I enjoy the challenge of making that light bend to my will. More photographs from this shoot can be found here.
