    I thought I’d post this as part of Lighting week, as I used a Westcott Spiderlite as my main light for this wine and cheese shot for my wife’s cookbook (she did the food styling for the shots you see above—click on them for a larger view). The shot on the left was taken with a 70-200m f/2.8 VR Nikon Lens. The shot on the right used the same lens, but with the screw-on Canon Close-up lens attached (it’s the only Canon product made for deliberately for Nikon cameras).

    Above is a look at the simple lighting set-up I used to get these shots. There’s a little bit of natural light coming from a bank of windows behind the wine and to the left, but it was late in the day on an overcast day, so it didn’t add as much natural light as I would have liked. The main light seen here is a Spiderlite TD-3 (little brother of the TD-5, with less power and brightness), with a small 24″x32″ softbox.

    The only other part of this set-up is the white cardboard reflector, held up by my high-tech reflector stand (also known as “another bottle of wine”).

    Now scroll down for my week-end wrap-up of “Lighting Gear Week.” :-)
