So when I’m not baking, carrying around my squishy bunny telling him how cute he is every five seconds, or sitting in front of my computer on the internet until my eyes glaze over and roll to the back of my head, I’m at school full time studying photography and design. So my eyes are glazing over again from photo editing everyday. But anyway, sometimes all these things overlap. To the left are Mexican Hot Chocolate and Salted Caramel cupcakes that I baked for a photography gallery show last month. My Lighting class organized it, so i also had a couple pieces in the show. My artwork and photos I make for school don’t make it onto the internet too often, but I here are the two I had in the show. Besides, they have cupcakes and pasta in them!
The only guidelines for the show submissions were the use of strobe lights in the studio using techniques learned from the class. The series of photographs I made for this project were modern day Renaissance portraits with attention to usage of color, pattern, dramatic lighting, indulgence, and abundance of objects. I did four or five different shoots with different models, and these are the two photos that made the cut. The series is entitled Anachronistic Antiquity: Modern Day Renaissance Portraits, each photo was printed 18×27″, and hung side by side:
The model in the first photo is my friend Amy of the blog Sweet Amy’s Bakery. We had a little fun in the studio after our shoot:
