Yesterday was insanely busy so I didn’t get a chance to post. I had a grill out at my house for my birthday and spent the entire day getting things ready for it. It was such a fun little gathering! These were from last night, but only one got eaten, so I now have cupcakes for the week. Elliot got me a Gorillapod for my birthday, so I played around with that for this picture.
I also used a method called focus stacking on this image. This involves taking several pictures with very slightly different focus points, and then combining them to get a larger depth of field. It allows me to keep the background out of focus but bring my entire subject into focus. Such a great little trick!
I had to cheat on this one. It was also from the wedding on Saturday. Sunday I was in the car most of the day, and then working on a ton of homework and just did not have the time or energy for a picture. They had Dr. Pepper cupcakes at the wedding, it was such a fun idea! I just loved how the light was hitting the foil left on the table, but it didn’t turn out quite how I wanted it to.
