Capture Your Cake

Why good photos?

Do you spend hours on making beautiful cakes, and then you're embarrassed to share the pictures you took of them? Have you ever wished you had a portfolio of beautiful pictures to show your potential clients, but you can't afford a professional photographer? Have you posted a photo to social media and written underneath, "Sorry for the bad photo! It's a phone pic!”? IF ANY OF THOSE SOUND FAMILIAR, THEN CAPTURE YOUR CAKE IS THE CLASS FOR YOU. Whether you are a creator of cake, cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, macarons or are great at styling dessert buffets, taking great photos of your creations is vital to building up a successful business. The very first thing a customer will notice about your web site or social media accounts is the photos of your work. The problem is, most of the time you're taking photos late at night in a dark and messy kitchen and you're too exhausted to worry about setting it up beautifully. Sometimes you just quickly snap a picture of the cake in it's box only minutes before the customer arrives to pick their cake up. You then go to share your photos and cringe when you have to say, "Sorry, it's a really bad photo! It looked a lot better in real life.” Great photography doesn't have to mean owning an expensive camera, spending hours setting up the perfect shot, buying lots of pricey props or waiting for the light to be exactly right.

You can take fantastic, professional quality cake photos – using only your smartphone and the skills Andy teaches in Capture Your Cake.

No bulky cameras, no expensive equipment or software!

No feeling disappointed that the cake looked better in real life.

Just you, your gorgeous creation and your smartphone, creating professional looking images you'll be proud to share over and over again.

I’ll show you the exact same cake photography techniques I teach my personal students, showing you how to take amazing looking images every time. Great photos will help you build a portfolio, increase your profile and build your brand – which in turn grows your business and increases your profit!

About Us

Behind: Capture Your Cake

Meet Andy & Miranda. Andy Knight – Owner of Forscene Studios in Melbourne, Australia & Co-Owner of www.captureyourcake.com and Miranda Piotrovska, Owner of Sweet Sticks and www.learnhowtomakecakepops.com. When Miranda approached Andy with the idea of creating a course to teach people how to take professional looking photos with their smartphone, Andy was immediately interested.  He personally knew how much time and money it can cost to capture the perfect photo and how it’s almost impossible for micro to small businesses to achieve this whilst trying to start or build their own businesses. This course is a way for people to allow their work to shine and get reputable credit on a social media front and also of-course new clients. "I want to empower and encourage people to shine through their passions. This course is designed to do just that! I do what it takes to get the right image, and I try to foresee the resulting image before touching my camera" - Andy Knight.

highlights

There are 9 highly detailed, step-by-step video modules:

 

Video 1: Introduction & Equipment

This introductory video introduces you to your instructor Andy, and goes through a few things you might like to invest in, most of which can be found at your local craft or office supply store.

Video 2: Lighting

The perfect photo starts with the right lighting. I’ll teach you how to find the right lighting in any situation and how to position your product in those situations.

Video 3: Reflectors

In this module we'll learn what a reflector is and how to best use one. Using reflectors can take your photo from "good enough” to "wow!” The difference is in learning how to manipulate the shadows with reflectors.

Video 4: Shooting at Night

It's late, and you're exhausted after hours of decorating that 4 tier wedding cake or making those 200 cake pops – but you're really proud of what you've done and want to have a good photo of it to show off. This module is all about taking the 'it's 2am and I'm exhausted!' photos and they will still look fantastic.

Video 5: Composition

Composition is how you arrange or put together the items that make up your image. Good composition is about knowing which shapes and proportions work together to create the most visually appealing photograph.

Video 6: Colours

Using complementary colors can create an immediately more attractive photo. We cover what you need to know about using color techniques visually and emotionally in your image.

Video 7: Props & Set-Up

Using props in an image is something we think is reserved for professional photographers. I'll show you how to use what you've already got to create great scenery to best show off your creations.

Video 8: Photographing Large Cakes

Because of their different sizes, taking a photo of a cupcake and a photo of a three-tiered cake is a little different. This video shows you how to get the best photos for larger cakes without losing any of the beautiful details.

Video 9: Dessert Tables

Dessert tables are hugely popular at celebrations these days. With so many different elements on the table, and such a big display, it can be difficult to capture images which reflect the overall feel of the buffet as well as highlight the individual treats. In this video, we cover what you need to know to create a lasting memory of your masterpiece. Now That You've Got The Basics, I'd Also Like to Give You
