A couple weekends ago I got my early birthday gift: Canon Speedlite 430 EX II Flash. This goes on my Canon Rebel XSi. You may have noticed some of my pictures in the past are not so awesome. As a working mom, I have little day-time to work on cakes, so most of my cake photos are taken in my kitchen at night. Poor lighting = bad photos. But now, no more! I can use my flash to bounce light off the walls and ceiling to create seemingly ambient light. I look forward to photographing all my sweet creations so they can be preserved long after the last slice has been eaten.
