Very kind of you - thanks. This vendor is known for their sweet tea and I wanted to include that but I was at the limit of my ability to light the scene with the gear I had on hand. Also, I was low on real estate - the weathered boards I placed the food on didn't extend the full frame width and I ended up having to use healing brush and clone stamp tool in PS CC to fill in the lower left and upper right corners
Low budget - hobby food photography aint what its all cracked up to be.
At least you've got a great software to tweak your photos ! I'm still using Picmonkey to edit my all food photos , I know , I know ! Hey , it's free and a fool-proof way to edit food photos You should see my set up , all DIY , woods that I painted myself , white/black/silver cardboard from the craft stores , white cloth to cover the window . Space is premium here in HK , imagine living in a 600 sq foot flat /apartment and using a 100mm macro in one of matchbox size bedrooms
