Next I added some pretty pearls and the cupcakes were ready for their close up!The behind the scenes star of this shoot was going to be these awesome lights I purchased from Walmart. I was so obsessed, this year, with taking pictures of things in front of my Christmas tree—because of the blurred light effect—so I thought I’d try to recreate that effect for this shoot. You can find them at Walmart, in the wedding section for under $6.00.
What do you think? I also used natural lighting because I don’t have a flash (nor do I like using it) but when I noticed I was starting to get some shadow I simply fixed that by placing a white board near the side of the cupcakes that were producing an ugly shadow. It worked out ok :-p
I was pretty happy with the over results. It was super fun for me and it was super easy on my wallet. I love that taking pretty pictures doesn't have to cost much. Have a great day!
