    My wife decorates cakes as a hobby and I get to take pictures of her efforts. I used a manual focus 55mm 3.5 Nikkor macro, but in retrospect, should have just used the kit lens on my X-E1. Magnified focus is tough indoors without good light. I was using speedlights to light the scene, so no real help in focusing. Anyway, enjoy.




    Only one of these is actually a real, edible cake.... One is for delivery today, the others are dummy cakes...for this dummy to photograph.

    Thanks. I think so too. I'm glad she has this hobby now. She buys cake tools, books videos etc, and I don't feel so guilty about my photography spending. :)
