Earlier this week I photographed my beautiful (inside & out!) cousin, Cara de Kock for her entry to the BBC Lifestyle Eric Lanlard cupcake competition.
The photos were taken at Cara’s gorgeous vintage inspired home in Melville – one of my favourite locations to shoot in, as there is no shortage of interesting props and the house has the most magnificent natural light.
The cupcake photos were shot with ambient light and a 90mm f/2.8 macro lens to create a dreamy shallow depth of field, while Cara’s portraits were lit with a single Elinchom studio light and shot with my very versatile 24-105mm f/4 lens. This was also my first shoot with my shiny new Canon 5D mark iii!
Cara bakes to order, cupcakes and a variety of healthier options, so if you are planning a special event, or even just require freshly-made daily lunch deliveries to your office, contact Cara at firstname.lastname@example.org You won’t be disappointed!
Good luck Cara! I’ve tasted your cupcakes and they are most certainly a winning recipe!
