Donna R. Moratelli May 11, 2005

Wow, what a suprise this is!! Thanks everyone!!

Hi,Jimi and Carolyn C, The lighting was was very tricky. It was acheived by using a lightbox,overexposure and also a studio light with a softbox attached to it. The lights were coming from the bottom and the top of the food.I also used a reflector. It was a hot tight situation but I endend up with a lot of funny images so it was well worth it.
Glad to share the info. Thank you!! #1339216
