I didn’t even know this was a thing.

For Mother’s Day this year, my new local bakery did a Raspberry Eclair as a special treat and I was lucky enough to get one. I brought it home and popped it in the fridge because I had a bunch of other things to do, but managed to do this shoot after lunch (although I didn’t eat it until after dinner).

I always struggle with which photos to leave out when I do a shoot like this. Some stats for you:

  • This shoot took from 2:41pm til 2:46pm (then I took the shot below about 10 minutes later)
  • I took 31 photos in total
  • I kept 21 of those photos
  • It was delicious 😋

It really was delicious – the tartness of the raspberries, the slightly sweet raspberry cream, and the biscuity eclair pastry – so, so good.

On my table

So technically this was a RegularRandom shoot, since it was inside 5 minutes.

Would you like to join the RegularRandom crew? Here’s how:

Version 1:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to not interfere with the subject, instead see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Version 2:

  • choose an object
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • put the object in different locations to see how the background or surroundings can change the way the object looks
  • have fun!
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to this post

Looking forward to seeing your shots.
