This shoot was for a catalog being distributed in US market for assorted baskets.
There was minimal fuss in a hotel room with the chefs taking care of the food. Bringing in 2 duffel bags worth of assorted lighting gear was a bit too much. After some test shots with a combo of ambient room lighting and a fully open window only 2 580 EX II Speedlights were used. The shoot was done in under 8 hours with 2 cameras tethered to a Mac. The images were used for both print and website usage.
