Food Photography

For the food photography assignment in Foods 11, I took photos of the mint-chocolate chip cupcakes I baked the night before. I looked on my phone to see if I was able to alter settings such as shutter speed and ISO but couldn’t find anywhere to change the defaults. I also didn’t have natural light to work with as I took the photos in my kitchen in the evening so I did my best to light the shots in a muted way without too much glare. I also wanted to make sure that even though it wasn’t a meal so it wouldn’t make sense to have cutlery and such in the photo, there was still texture, which is why I included the plate and positioned it on my counter in front of the back-splash.
