I’m including two pictures of the finished cake simply because I don’t think either of them capture the cake in its truest form. Again, I have never, or will ever, claim to be any kind of photographer other than amateur. Just my point-and-shoot Nikon and a girl with a little time on her hands.
This picture was taken at my house under my kitchen lights, 5 60W light bulbs. I thought it turned out alright….on my camera.
This picture was taken at work, under fluorescent lights. I wasn’t going to take another picture but I thought I should just in case.
I think that the first picture is brighter but the clown looks too bright. The second one seems to have a more yellow tint to it but the clown looks better and the hot-air balloon looks like glass!
Maybe I need to shoot at another angle or maybe I need to use better lighting and background. Either way, I know that I will have to read up on improving my camera skills. First off, I would like to get a Nikon or Canon Digital SLR. I know that they take good pictures on their own, however, the operator must understand the equipment and be able to use it properly. This is why I think that I need to look online for some quick tutorials on point-and-shoot photography….it may be a while until I get a good Digital SLR. :)
Well, I just thought that I would show these off! I was pretty proud of how my cake turned out! I tasted great too! I was just a box recipe, which I was not happy about, but I figured that since it saved me so much time it was worth it since it’s been a little hectic around here lately. I’m trying to get some crafting done, but something always seems to get in my way. I’ll hopefully get some time soon.
I forgot to mention that my fiancée and I will be moving out June 1st, so we are on a house hunt. We are actually going to be moving in with my cousin Matt who moved here in February and has since been living with my wonderful mother. We went to look at a house today and the manager said that she was going to leave the door unlocked for us but she must have forgotten. Oh well, I’ll call tomorrow and I’m sure they will open it for us. I’ll update!
