    I took your webinar on food photography today.
    I myself is an iStocker and I’ve been always interested in food photos (but never tried to take them). The webinar was very informative and helpful. I took a lot of notes.
    Just wanted to say thank you very much!

    Hi Nicole,

    I too love food and love photography – and do the best I can with what I have to merge the two in my blog. I’m currently overseas and the webcast times don’t mesh with my timezone – but I watched the recorded version yesterday and absolutely loved it – some great info and things I can’t wait to try (waiting for my tripod to arrive from home in the mail!). My mom stuffed my virtual stocking with your e-book and I can’t wait to cuddle up with my laptop and read. Your photos are gorgeous – your food looks delicious – and your entire set up is completely inspiring (because it is totally doable). Thanks for being so real and for sharing your loves with those of us who share them.

    Hi Nicole,

    I just watched your food webinar, and learned A LOT! Thank you for letting us watch it after the actual webinar. I don’t photograph food, but have been attempting- note attempting- mostly struggling to photograph fabric jewelry for a non-profit. Seeing your setup really helped, especially the Lastolite for filtering the window light- that has been one of my big problems. Would you recommend the 48″? That looks like what you have. It’s twice as expensive as the 30″ and not as portable, but do you feel it’s a better overall investment? Thanks for sharing your expertise with us!

    I just found out today about your webinars. Would really love to participate. Is there any way to watch a recorded version?

    Thanks so much for all you do!

    Hi Nicole,
    I have read your book for food Photography. It was awesome. I have a question regarding the lighting for food photography. So far, I had taken pictures in my closed room with tungsten light. After reading many books I would like to take pictures using the artificial light setup. Which one would you recommend for beginners? I have kids in my house so the hot lights may not work for me.

    Appreciate your suggestion.

    Thank you !

      Hi Anu, it all depends on how much you want to spend. There are continuous lights that use cool lights, so they shouldn’t get as hot (like a Spiderlight from Westcott:

      If you want a strobe, you might want to look into Alienbees, but don’t get anything too powerful (a 400 should work well with food):

      You can also use an off-camera flash as well if you have one and have a way to trigger it.
