Time for post numero uno and what better day than Valentines day. While my valentine is very very far away (living in Spain), and I’m all the way on the opposite side of the Atlantic Ocean (New York), we manage to send each other some love despite the distance. Today that love arrived in the form of a surprise box filled with an assortment of delicious cupcakes from Magnolia on Park Ave (my favorite). I dont know how long they’ll last before I eat them all but they were so beautiful I decide it was a great photo opportunity.
I chose this tight macro shot to emphasize the details in the frosting and sprinkles; open aperture at f3.5 to fade out background distraction while attempting to make the heart on top the focus of the foto. Finally I chose to go monochrom to give the image more emphasis on the details, shapes and lines rather than the colors. Besides, black and white is a totally classy timeless look. All in all a pretty successful image. I’m sure my girlfriend will love it.
