No Cookie Cutters Have Been Sacrificed…

…in the making of these photos.

Some of you may remember this post from last year. Well, I finally got around to doing a little experiment and was quite pleased with the way it turned out. Thankfully it didn’t burn as fast as I thought (or was afraid) it would, and I had several shots to choose from. I was also afraid that I would have to sacrifice my favorite cookie cutter (not that I actually ever make cookies with, it’s strictly for photography purposes 😉 ) but thankfully it’s still good as new.

Once again I have to thank Brian for his help. Not with editing this time, but settings advice….even though I almost regretted listening to him and shooting in RAW. Thanks, friend 🙂

  5. Still as good as new eh!!.. Looks just a tiny bit melted to me. Lol… It’s pink anyway, so I’d not worry too much. 😉 You did get some pretty cool shots though. 🙂

    • It’s not melted at all!! 🙂 And you have to admit, that pink looks pretty darn nice in that last shot. Nice contrast to the black match stick heads 😉
