I got a smart phone for the first time this year, and the one thing I have enjoyed having with me at all times is the camera on that phone. I’m still wrapping my head around the idea that I have a camera at my fingertips pretty much at all times, because for so long I never had my camera with me when I wanted it. It was too much hassle.
I hope that taking pictures becomes more second nature to me now, because I love documenting what I see and experience. Hopefully that will also help me with this blog.

The other day I listed some goals I planned to do or work on this year for the blog. One of them was learning to become a better photographer so that my blog pictures would show my creations at their best. Today I came across a photo challenge from last year called Project 365. Although I don’t plan to take a picture everyday, I do plan to use some of their theme inspirations as a guide to keep me on track and learn some photography techniques in the process.
The lovely Canon PowerShot A3000IS point-and-shoot camera I'll be using
I also think making a light tent will help for close-up shots of my cupcakes. I found a pretty cool tutorial over on the Digital Photography School’s website.
I’m looking forward to sharing better cupcake photos with you soon!
