Visitors to my blog will know that I have been playing around with food photography for a couple of years. I did some childrens' recipe pics a couple of years ago for a friend who had a blog for young mums.
But these cupcakes were my first official paid food photography work! Very exciting. I would be interested to know what you think of the result....the brief was to photograph the different sample varieties she had made with packaging. The room wasn't particularly well lit, so I was glad I brought along my lightbox to photograph the cup cakes in. Minor post-processing in Lighroom for exposure, sharpening and straightening.
The rest of our Saturday and Sunday morning was taken up with looking after our grandsons, so I did a bit of Easter chocolate making with them. Please don't judge me on THIS food photography!....
Then Sunday afternoon it was off to Perth to see my husband's mother who is in a care facility, and then to friends for the night. Monday morning we had an appointment, after which we went to lunch at one of my favourite cafe's in Angelo Street in South Perth - the Secret Garden. Here is their link - The Secret Garden Cafe
Which happens to be next door to a gorgeous little plant nursery and garden decoration and gift shop called Garden Affair. I lovely place to browse especially if you are looking for a garden theme gift. Don't you just love this umbrella? Here is their link - Garden Affair
We also visited the State Library to see the 2013 WA Press Photographer of the Year Awards exhibition showcasing major news events, sporting moments and feature stories. It was wonderful to see such high quality press photography expecially the compelling portrait images....as you would expect.... Here is a quick snap, thought I better not get too close.... If you happen to be in Perth, the exhibition is on till 12 May and entry is free.
I hope you have enjoyed this little look into my weekend. Have a wonderful week. I look forward to hearing from you.
