Low Key Chocolate Cake

I wanted to create something unexpected with these images.

Using my speedlite, I ended up shooting some low key images of this chocolate cake. If you scroll down, you’ll see one taken with natural backlight. It’s magical how light can totally change the mood and story of a subject.

I’m in love with this type of lighting.

The image here on the left is the natural backlight. On the right, shot with my speedlite. Creating two unique images. Ah! Magical.
