These were all just so darn cute, I posted a whole bunch. This took a little more prep than my usual shoots of course. The backdrop paper had been in my closet, waiting for this very opportunity. Baloons were strategically arranged for an asymmetrical yet balanced composition. Light came primarily from a large window, supplemented on one side by a lamp - to reduce the shadows on sides and behind; and a reflector opposite, to do the same. Next, place cake and birthday boy on floor and let him at it. A very fun shoot indeed!
