Don’t you love a reason to buy or bake a yummy treat just so you can photograph it? Today is carrot cake day but you can photograph any favorite treat.

The challenge today is photographing your treat in B&W. You will really need to capture the texture since color won’t come into play. Adding sprinkles… or fruit… or other decorative items can create texture. Try different tones of gray in your post processing and see what makes it pop.
