Cook Book Challenge: Week 40 by cakecrumbs Cook Book Challenge: Week 40 by cakecrumbs
This week's recipe is Pork with Tomato Salsa and Polenta Dumplings from Leggo's "Fast Italian." Another freebie book!

Now that it's winter and that we lose light by about 4:30 I'm pretty much out of a decent setup for lighting my photos and not much I've tried has been great. I've asked for critiques but it's more appropriate to say I'm after advice on how to artificially light food in the most inexpensive manner possible. If you have any advice, or have a link to any tutes/artucles written on the topic, I'd be veery thankful.

Meantime, grab the recipe for this one here: [link]

I don't know if you still want tips for lighting, but I have a good idea for a ghetto reflector ^^; What I do for a circle light is take a hula hoop and wrap it in Christmas lights. That turns the picture really yellow, but my camera has auto-color balance, so I just hold a white piece of printer paper in front of the lens and it fixes that. For a reflector, take a hula hoop and wrap a perfectly white sheet on it and that will help reflect and diffuse light. Hope that helps in case you still want some ghetto lights ^^;

Tried this one today!

It was ok, but i don't think i would do it again. And i am not sure if i did everything right with the polenta. "Cups" is always a difficult story for me :B
Result looked similar though - yay!

This is your job, right? If not, it should be.
