Today begins my first Project 365. I’m hoping it will force me to be more creative, learn new skills, and reaffirm my love for photography.
My sister and I both love to bake, especially cupcakes. She taught me an awesome trick for doctoring boxed cake mixes. The coconut in these cupcakes was a simple addition, and yielded a wonderful texture to both cake and frosting.
I also used my new LumiQuest Softbox III in this shot. I’m loving the way it softens the flash. Studio lighting is an area of photography I’d love to learn more about, though I’m partial to natural light.
I don’t want to clog up my blog with a single photo every day, so please take a look at my Flickr photostream if you’d like to follow my Project 365 adventure!
