So the wife is getting ready for Easter.  She baked some sugar cookies.  In the same session, I also shot her amazing new Fondant creation.  I know she worked really hard at it and it looks so pro!!

Shot with the same setup as the post below.

Canon 5D MKII & 24-70mm 2.8L

Easter Flower Cookie

Easter Egg Cookie

Easter Bunny Cookie


While waiting to shoot the wife’s new culinary creation, I had my light setup and started to shoot everything that was around me.  Here are a few interesting examples.

All shot with Canon 5D MKII w/ 24-70mm 2.8L

I used Dustin’s drawing paper as my seamless.  It’s not full white.  Brownish with spots.  Light setup with 4 color balanced 100 watt equivalent CFL Home Depot DIY special.  I could use more light since I did notice some light drop off.

Here is my attempt at some flower. The black background was the black side of my 5 in 1 ebay special reflector. I sandwiched it between the leaves and flowers. I had to do a few trial and error to get the correct exposure to show the black without the reflector wrinkl . No post processing was done. The picture came out exactly the way I wanted out of the camera.
Both pictures were shot in natural day light (nice cloudy day) with Canon 5D MKII and 24-70mm 2.8L since that’s the only lens I have that can semi do macro.
