This morning I  was in the mood to create some quick food photographs. The setup for this image is really similar to a previous food shoot I did last month. I’m really lucky to have a nice big window in the front room of my house, since food tends to look so much better in natural light.

    Hi Nicole! May I ask what tripod (head) do you use with your 7d?

    I use the Manfrotto 501HDV (that’s the one in the BTS photo in my earlier post).
