Midnight comes on time and so does a delivery of fresh baked buns from the bakery. I did 2 different versions of photos for the buns. One was plated with some jam on a pink polka dot plate and the other was this one.
I decided to post this one because something about the top of the bun just appealed to me more than the version that was split open. In addition this one allowed me to add text to the top of the final photo.
2 lights were used for this shot. 1 to blow out the background giving it that seamless paper look and one to light the bun. This is very quick and easy to setup and tear down. No need for any of those macro studio boxes you see on eBay. Just 2 lights and a table.
