This weekend I am off to the first ever Cake Pop Conference in Philadelphia, PA. I am so excited to be meeting 200 ladies who LOVE what they are doing. There are going to be people from all over the world attending. It is going to be SO much fun, with bakers coming from 26 states & 8 other countries – Canada, Germany, Brazil, Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Australia, England & Bahrain.
For some quick, down and dirty photo advice, here ya go.#1 Invest in a camera. A DSLR is best if you are a business and what good photos of your finished work. A photo is your business and your livelihood; let your photos do all the talking for you. What does your photo say about your business?
#2 Learn how to use your DSLR. Play with it. I’ve been playing with mine for over two years now and I still learn new tricks. When I don’t know how to do something, I Google it or I even read the manual.
#3 Take some photography classes. This is one thing that I didn’t do. I wish I had, maybe I would have picked it up quicker. There are some amazing online classes (that are free) for you to watch and learn. Creative Live is a great resource that I’ve taken the time to watch and learn from.
#4 Edit your Photos. This goes for all the mobile phone photographers as well! Edit everything before you post it. Take the time to make sure the white balance is correct. Look for crumbs that are distracting. Brighten, darken, highlight, and warm your photos so that show off your work and reflect all the hard work that you have put into your creation.
Anyway, make these super yummy Banana Nut Cake Truffles. They really were super amazing!
