Many years ago I purchased a Canon EOS. At the time it was “the camera to have” or the Jones’ of the camera world. I bought two lenses with it and a flash pack, feeling oh so pleased with myself, it seemed that in the world of photography I had arrived. In a few short years, all cameras went digital and my optical EOS was basically useless.
Finally, when I went back to New York for a six week vacation I did a little (well, maybe a lot, actually it was a lot!) of shopping. One of my purchases was to buy a digital Canon camera. It had to be a Canon, as I hoped the old lenses would still be compatible. I sheepishly asked the gentleman helping me. He said “yes” and then did a test. They worked! I wanted to literally jump for joy and probably could have, as the very tolerant New Yorkers probably wouldn’t have thought me to be too odd. But I didn’t, just did internal cartwheels instead.
Since, my cake creations seem to be gaining more and more of an audience. I soon learned that the typical iPhone photographs definitely could go and be replaced with professional ones. I have nothing against iPhone cameras, as there are amazing editing apps available to create a good photograph and to me the quality is most of the time good enough.
A few days after I got back to Australia, a Red Velvet cake was waiting to be delivered for a lady’s 40th Birthday. She didn’t want any icing over it and in the cake decorating world it’s called a “naked” cake. A few fresh from Townsville Flower Market dressed it up perfectly and then for the first time I grabbed my new Canon. Tadaa! A moment in history was made… my own professional cake photograph.
