OCMETRO's 40 Under 40 Carrot cake desert

Busy taking photos the whole night, I missed my opportunity to #nom on one of these delicious looking carrot cake samplers. The buzz from the crowd was enough to make me miss the sweetness too, as I watched multiple people going back for seconds, and some, thirds. Luckily I’m not a huge desert fan (I know, who doesn’t like deserts! freak!) so I can tell myself I didn’t miss out on much. Now, chocolate chip cookies and/or brownies … that’s a different story. Not quite falling into the “desert” category I let them pass my test. They’re more of a “lifeblood” category. Nom nom nom!

  • Camera: Canon T2i
  • Focal Length: 50mm
  • Shutter: 1/60
  • Aperture: f/1.8
  • ISO: 500
  • Note: To get this shot i didn’t use a flash, just the natural light from a nearby window. Without a nice lighting setup, finding ways to use natural light will produce a more “realistic” looking image, since it’s what the viewers eye would be normally seeing.
  • Tip: Use a large aperture (smaller number) so that you can get a nice depth of field to the images, focusing on one singular item.
