Day 92 - A Spoonful of Strawberry and Sugar


This was a fun shot to capture. I had to enlist the help of the hubs and the tripod to make it happen and am overall pleased with the outcome.

To answer everyone's question about yesterday's shot, I set up the shot on my kitchen floor. I used a cream colored table cloth cover as a backdrop and got on my belly to be on eye level with my subject and snapped away. I then imported it into LR and then used the adjustment brush to bump up the exposure in the areas around the toys.  That's how I obtained such a white background. Thank you for showing sincere interest in my photos. Hope this explanation helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
