The photographers on the Create TV show starring Steve Reichlein do some outstanding food shots. Check 'em out.

I will, Benji. Thank you! I won't take up more portrait board space on food photography, but this weekend I'll try to watch and will get back with you on another board about it. Thanks again!

Flashes or battery strobe I forget, but definitely those modifiers....
