Cup Cake Macro shoot

Who doesn't love a cupcake? Texturally rich and full of cool angles: when you get in tight a new world opens up. We're looking to get in nice and close on these tasty bits, crafted by the award winning cupcaketeers at Sweet Cupcasions here in Milford. Tamron is loaning us some macro lenses to use for the night in case you don't have one of your own: you'll get so tight you can taste it. And you can: everybody who comes gets a cupcake to take home.  

We'll have a few table top setups lit for effect and volunteer hand model Curt Law to help for the evening. Table top displays are static and we ask that those food items not be handled while on display.  

$10 per person. Contact the store to register without paypal. Participants will receive a $25 off any Tamron lens purchased that evening. Photo by Margaret Gallagher.

    Really enjoyed this photo shoot - can you tell me the lighting set-up for Curt holding the single cupcake? Thanks!

      Easy! A single large LED light in an undiffused softbox on a lightstand boom right over him. Below him is a silver light disc on the table he leaned on. I think there are some shots of the rig in the event album. The tricky bit is underexposing for the highlights but after a few frames I got it. I have a similar setup planned for the Monster Pizza shoot Tuesday night.

    Jesse, I can't thank you enough for the cup cake macro shoot!!!
    Not only was it fun but I learned a lot about macro lenses and
    several questions that you and your great staff put me on the right
    track with. I enjoyed the three stations and especially Mr. Curt Law.
    He is so patient and nice. Thanks again for everything. I'm looking forward to our next meetup!!!

    Jesse, I do have a macro lens so it's not a major deal, but will Tamron be bringing any Sony compatible lenses?

    August 25, 2013

  • Tracy H.

    I'd like to experiment with my old Nikon N5005 AF SLR film camera. Can you recommend a type of film (ISO, etc.) that would work best in this setting?
