This live show focuses on how to photograph food, specifically how to take eye-catching and creative images of baked goods such as cakes and tarts. These types of images are popular for blogs, recipe books, magazines, restaurant menus, and as stock imagery, and you don’t necessarily need to be a skilled baker to shoot them!
Composition and lighting form the main focuses of this show, as Karl explains each compositional decision for the image, including his choice of background and props. He also demonstrates a simple three-light setup, which was achieved using affordable lighting modifiers (including a DIY modifier), and shows you how you could further enhance this by using simple reflectors or additional lights.
