I am planning to do Hansel and Gretel. I know some places that I can shoot outside of a vintage house. For the forest part shouldn’t be an issue.
Split Lighting Loop Lighting
Broad Light Short Light
I enjoyed the effect that both of these images had which was the reflection of the pastries. The lighting for both were different. The lemon tart is more of a dark feeling especially with the burned edges of the whipped cream. As for the cupcakes is more fun and messy based on the sprinkles. There was two lightings which one was on the back which makes the effect in front of the cupcakes.
The lighting for this particular shot was high. Only one source of light was available which makes the bottom of the flower look darker. I also shot this from a low angle so I would see the flower bloom. I intend to fit the frame, but it can be tighter since there is empty space on the top of the flower.
