New Works Again!

I'm currently learning to use proper studio lighting for still life images. I'm really into product photography right now, it does actually make money. I've tried the lightings to this cake and my Rubik cubes. Well, I am really into the cubes lately.


The special thing from studio lighting for product photography is that i can make things look more interesting, and presenting it as something 'new'. The cake was just a normal cake, but you can actually make it look like a piece of 'art' under the studio lights!

I love photographing foods!
I can actually eat them after photographing them ;)

My record for the 3x3 cube is like 20 seconds ;)



Lately I've been trying to export files on Corel Draw. I've been into it for some times, and now I'm exploring it again. I've just found out the fun in Corel Draw! I think I'll spend most of my time doing stuff in Corel Draw, but I'll try to post some more pictures really soon!

If You're BAKING CUPCAKES You Should Look at the Size of the Oven

Kemarin sore aku bikin Cupcake Krim Kayumanis. Waktu ngeliat gambarnya di buku resep keliatan enak banget DAN gampang. Bahannya juga ga aneh-aneh. Rencananya sih mau dipamerin ke temen-temen, like 'Hey, I can be a good cook!' and so. Hahah! Sisi keibuan dari sifat 'kebapakan' saya. Badly, it turned out like a disaster, a Cream Monster invades my kitchen.

Maunya sih aku nyalahin adekku. Ngocok adonan aja GAGAL... Tapi aku MASIH positiv tingkimm (HAHA!). Lancar-lancar aja proses masukin adonannya ke kertas roti DAN loyangnya itu. Cuma gara-gara buru-buru takut adonannya 'turun' jadi AGAK beleberan. And the problem came through... Pas masukin loyang ke ovennya, ternyata GA MUAT. Ukurang panjang ovennya itu CUMA 3/4 panjang loyangnya. Histeria meledak, mata berair, hidung panas!

And so, from that point, I just knew that it FAILED... The taste is REALLY fine, but the texture and the look really blew everything up! Cuma ada 2 cake yang mengembang, TAPI tengahnya bolong dan kulitnya BANTAT. Sisanya BANTAT TOTAL! Two out of 22 is half fine...

Ngeeh... Sebel... Akhirnya tadi buat pelampiasan bikin Gingerbread Cookies. Luckily it's REALLY fine and REALLY good. Imma give it to my classmates. HAHAHA!

Mmm... Imma give You the DISASTER CINNAMON CUPCAKE RECIPE::
150 gr putih telur
1/4 sdt garam
1/2 sdt cream of tartar
50 gr gula pasir
50 gr gula palem
150 gr kuning telur kocok lepas
75 gr terigu
20 gr maizena
1 sdm bumbu spekuk
35 gr margarin leleh
25 gr krim kental
gula tepung untuk taburan (optional)

Campur sampe lembut DAN mengembang... BUKAN cair! At least You want it to make it looked like mine.
