My Favorite Stores
- CAMERA – LENS
My Sony is really wonderful, I still use it for quick shots.
Best option for those who have limited time, but still want to present their sugar art or product so it looks good on photos is to invest in a light tent.
How to build a Light Tent
- CAMERA SETTINGS
Nikon 17 -55mm f/2.8
- PROPS, BACKGROUNDS & STYLING
Actually I find styling to be very challenging, I learned that less is more.
-don’t clutter your shot with a lot of different props, simple napkin, fork, knife will do just fine.
-test different backgrounds, either solid, or patterned, scrapbooking papers are great too. Make sure that fabric or paper will cover the the area of view
-experiment with different plates, bowls, silverware, ribbons, ingredients can be part of the set up as well.
-use only the best samples you have available to you (perhaps you made 12 cupcakes, so pick only the best of the bunch)
It grows outside of my window..why not to use in the photo
I decided to add a little color using yellow paper
I lined the smallest box I could find ( I think it used to be a small jewelery box) with pink tissue paper (Victoria Secret),
I had this shot in my head for a while, I planted some grass into a pretty green container and voila, it made a for a perfect Easter Egg Photo prop.
I collect paper napkins and hankies, some of them I iron or I cut them into shapes. Further below you’ll come across a photo of Ice Cream Cones, on the side is a polka dot napkin with ice cream cone image on the top.
Same napkin was used here.

- SHOOTING STYLE
- ERASING AND FORMATTING MEMORY CARD
When not in use I store my camera in an air tight container filled with a large bag of silica gel.
See you later.
