Today’s photoshoot was a tempting one—an online editorial food photoshoot with light, fluffy, and aromatic cupcakes. Two backgrounds were supplied: a simple, textured orange background and a red-orange Gingham cloth.

The client was easy-going and only required descriptive, high-key images that would make their clients’ mouths water. We achieved that.

These cupcakes were photographed RAW using a Canon EOS 60D with a 17-40mm f/4 L lens and edited in Aperture 3. A simple subject like this could have easily been shot as JPGs, since there was very minimal work done in post. Shot with a neutral profile, they only required a touch of contrast, sharpening, and vibrancy.
