End of the Stock Photography Course

I keep using the word "interesting" to describe this course. It's been 8 long weeks photographing in unfamiliar territory and I have enjoyed almost every minute. I don't mean "enjoyed" like - oh how fun:). I mean enjoyed as in stretching my way of thinking. There were many great photo shoots, and an equal number of frustrating ones. My last assignment was "cake." So how many ways can you photograph cake? I chose the cupcake option. What do you think?I also created my first photo collage! I think I'm more excited about that than the cake (Well, except for how much of it I ate while making it. And the left overs!).

I love the collage and the cake, especially since it is black and white. Very "interesting"!

I don't know what it is - maybe the red of the roses and the green of the leaves and all that white icing and the weak blue-sky backgrounds - but these sort of feel 'Christmassy'.

And fun too.

I see what you mean:). I had more fun than I thought I would taking pictures of cupcakes. But it seemed more intesting than taking photos of just one cake, which was "technically" the assignment. I feel the need to get back to some free creativity.

Beautiful! I love the top right and bottom left ones especially Sandy, and the collage as a whole too. Collage is such fun, it adds a kind of "whole is greater than the sum of the parts" dimension for me too, which I love. I don't know if that makes sense?
