Panini with Studio Lights

Here’s a behind-the-scenes of a food setup in my studio using studio lights. I’ve done a lot of window-light photography, but wanted to start using lights when photographing food. (This setup is identical to the setup used for a photo of chili I recently posted here on my blog).

Here’s the equipment used in this setup:

– ABR-800: Alien Bees Ringflash (link) with 56″ Moon Unit (link).
– AB-800 (link) with  softbox (link)
– Reflector
