Horlicks and Hazelnut Meringue Gateau shoot

My live in stylist, Lisa- Jane, from Marmite on toast, decided to make a  Nigella Lawson favorite for her best friends birthday. This was a point and shoot go at the cake as it was leaving the house. LJ works well under pressure so it was completed 20 minutes before the party started. No time for styling or scaping.! And a huge mess left in the kitchen!

After snapping a few shots, I added one or two pre-sets in Lightroom as I felt an Antique filter may complement the wood and wrought iron cake stand and the brown and orange colours.

This was just a quick shoot with no special props. Natural light was used, which meant bumping up the ISO to 2000, as I was not using a tripod and needed to up my speed because of the low light indoors. These shots were done using my  Nikon D3s with a Nikon 24-120mm lens.
