I love real wedding cakes – I understand the economics of having a “stunt cake” or a fake cake where only part of the cake is real for the cake cutting ceremony. However, real cake is so much more tasty.
This cake was a carrot cake covered with real blueberries, strawberries, and currants. It was a little tricky to photograph – it was so dark and backlit. I photographed it several ways – with an off camera flash, with natural light, from outside looking in. This particular photograph was stitched together from 9 exposures and put together using HDR (High Dynamic Range).
I then edited the photograph to have a more film look – digital looks to perfect sometimes – and imitating film gives things a unique look.
