This is the photo from my blog post here: Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cupcake Recipe w/ Cream Cheese Frosting. For this photo I wanted to really capture what the cupcake was about. I purposely put the icing off center to reveal the vanilla sugar underneath. I put it on a plate that would cause it to to be the star of the post. Patterned plates typically take away from the food that is placed on it. The eye is immediately drawn to the more profound pattern. I also put some of the chocolate shavings all around the plate to give it a bit of interest. I used the macro setting to get all of the little details. Finally, I took it outside, in the evening to get the best lighting possible.
So what kind of shots have you taken lately?
