Thank you for your kind words Kay, but there are so many here far better than I! No magic here, I'm not techie enough to mess with my phone's camera settings much. I think it's just that I have dinner early and there's usually a lot of forgiving natural light.

Not so for this afternoon's dinner - dark, rainy and cloudy lately so I turned on the overhead lights...don't care and posting it anyway.

I liked her personality also (the gal on the video tenspeed posted). She was relaxed and cute as a bug. l'll watch her other videos.

Janet...I'm totally focused on the lusciousness of those cakes and not on the background!

There's a background?

Don't you still owe me cake?

Here is the setup I use for quick food pr0n for the DC forum. The second photo shows a rig I came up with using basic household items on my kitchen table.

You can also substitute a window for the artificial lighting -- but only during the day, of course.

All that work, and you still forgot to add the Taylor Ham to the last photo.
