Nice shots. Did the chocolates survive the photo shoot?

They are gone now, but did last for a while.
This was a reshoot as the first time they weren't quite straight.

I do have other chocolates made by the same company.
A box with bicycles on and a box with penguins and reindeers.

Nice job. I'm wondering on the soft box... you tipped it downward around 45 degrees, right? Wonder if you needed to, or should, or if it makes a difference if you had the soft box light level instead. Just curious.

Thank you.

I didn't have the softbox level as it would have given very flat light.

A set up I often use both for food and still life is a soft box flat over the top and then a hard light low and from the rear of the set usually left or right, the soft box is then effectively the fill light and the hard light the key which can create really nice highlights as it cuts across the object(s) you are shooting, adding a warm gel to that hard light can look like sunshine streaming in through a window you can add to that effect by aiming that hard light through a gobo. Another reason I favour the soft box directly over the top and flat rather than at an angle is you can add a light to the back ground (or not and have it black/grey or any other colour according to your preference)

This setup is not a new idea by any means but by varying distances and flash power/F stop between all of the above some very different effects can be achieved.

Nice shot! I like the contrast emphasized by the slate slabs. Of course without the great lighting it would have been lost.
