Whimsical Cake Studio Inc.
I had the very great pleasure of hanging out with my buddy Ken in his family's shop Whimsical Cake.
We've been talking back and forth for a while now about having me come in and shoot a cupcake for fun. After some phone and e-mail tag I was able to make it down to the shop and have some fun! This was one of my more Frankenstein lighting set ups and I wish I would have remembered to take a picture of it....
- 430 exII on a stand above and to the camera left of the cupcake with a cardboard snoot held in place by a rubber band as well as a softbox diffuser taped over top of it. Set at 1/64 and zoomed to 105mm
- b800 camera right and above at 1/16 with a blue gel shot onto the brick wall.
- Silver reflector below the scene angled at 45 degrees for fill from what little light spill the 430 exII gave off.
- Triggered with cybersyncs.
