Tiina recently gave cake designer Marcia a lesson in Do-It-Yourself cake photography. Marcia has a business doing wonderful custom designed cakes for parties and occasions. She needs to photograph the cakes just before they are delivered because each cake she makes is unique. So the only real option for her is to take the images herself and she had been doing it without any instruction before, and she realised that improvement on the quality of the images was needed to reflect the quality of her cakes. One hour lesson with Tiina at her studio is £100 and you get to keep the images. Here’s what Marcia said after the lesson:
As a cake decorater/designer I need to make sure I take good pictures of the end product for my portfolio and website.
After a training session with Tiina, I understood how important it is to ensure you have a beautiful picture showing every detail of the finished product.
Tiina showed me how to set my studio professionally, she made sure I knew how to set up and take down the equipment, Tiina educated my on how to use my camera, how to position the lighting, how to position the product to get the best picture possible. Overall I truly appreciated the content and the delivery of the training.
Tiina even gave information of how to purchase equipment with minium cost to encourage setting up your home studio.
I recommend her to all cake designers and florist who need to take better pictures of their creations before sending them off – Get professional training! Your pictures will look so much better! A massive thank you to Tiina, I really feel excited that I will now be able to take professional photos of my cakes!
