Donuts. I love them.
Anyone who knows me knows that I love gifting them by the dozens, I love being in the company of others that love donuts, and most of all, I love having them on set. When I was practicing artificial soft light, I had some hibiscus donuts on set and one of them coincidentally looked like an ideal “hero”. There weren’t any live hibiscus flowers on hand but I had a few prop flowers from another styling project. I worked fairly quickly since studio lights are hot and real icing tends to melt and I totally wasn’t going to waste a perfectly good donut. Even though this was only a test shoot, the end results almost remind me of the ads for beauty products. It definitely gave me some great ideas for future photo shoots!
P.S. Just in case you wanted to know, you can grab a hibiscus donut for yourself at Dough in New York City. I am not sponsored by Dough – but I will gratefully accept them on set any day! 😉
