    OK Nicole… That’s just not right! Just stopped myself from trying to take a bite out of my monitor. WOW. So well done and it looks soooo tasty.

    Nicole.. big fan of yours here… Aside from how delicious this looks, I am noticing that many of the food setups, yours and others, use a very hi-key lighting effect.. really strong back-light. Do you further over-expose the background in post? The blown out areas top left where you put your watermark, is a great spot for ad copy.. is this intentional??

    @Michael – Yes, sometimes it is intentional (and pretty much all done in-camera). Since most of the work I do is for my stock portfolio then I do keep things like “copy space” in mind. Overall I tend to be very minimalistic and simple with my food images, and enjoy photographing the “bright whites” a lot. (BTW, the photo actually isn’t blown out, there’s still some detail in the background. I don’t tend to go for “isolated” images” with food photography.)
