Shooting Products with a Single Strobe - Cup Cakes

I've been spending time going back to basics, shooting products with one light using a variety of techniques and tools. This is a mini update to my previous article about shooting fig rolls using a variety of different products using different techniques and tools with a single strobe (flash).

After shooting the fig rolls with a single strobe, I decided that I would try and shoot other products using similar techniques.  I ended up using the same technique as I did with the fig rolls, bouncing the flash against the back wall to reflect back onto the product with white cards to light up the front,  like this:

These are the product ads that I came up with:

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Chocolate Cupcakes

Similar to the fig rolls, I ended up enjoying shooting the product and eating if during the shoot.  I would have shot more, but my kids took the rest away from me!

I hope you have enjoyed this small update. If you have any questions or comments you can email them to
