How do I achieve this look? (Food Photography)
Jul 30, 2014

Hi everyone!

I hope someone can steer me in the right direction, as I'm a beginner to the world of photography.

I am a cake decorator and I am ready to take studio photographs of my cakes. I would like to achieve a look exactly like the cakes below:

This seems to be a standard photography studio with some kind of gray backdrop. What I'm trying to achieve is that seamless appearance where you cannot distinguish between the background and the platform that the cake is sitting on. The backdrop seems to curve perfectly underneath and the lighting gives a nice glow to the cake.

I'd be grateful to anyone who can point out a product on Amazon that I can purchase to achieve this exact look as well as what lighting setups I need to learn. Also, is any touching up necessary in Photoshop to achieve this look, or can it all be done during shooting?

Thanks so much! I would appreciate any and all responses.
