When my pal Ian told me he had booked us onto Olympus Image Space a free afternoon shooting cake I was more than interested…. even more so when they said you could eat the models afterwards!!
Hosted by Rob Pugh (see his website here ) it was an introduction to food photography, using the fantastic Westcott Ice Light system, these are cool looking ‘strip lights’ that are daylight balanced, giving a beautiful natural light…. ideal for food photography.
Rob was very informative, showing various techniques that he utilises for his own food shoots, and there was as always, an abundance of Olympus goodies to play with. I used my own E-M5 with the very versatile 12-50 ‘kit’ lens, as it has a great macro feature that is very handy in this sort of shooting environment.
So a fun time was had by all, and mucho cake was eaten afterwards!
