This photo was part of a series for a Cook Book. I thought the cream colour needed a contrasting background. But I wanted also a contrast in the background, hence the white lower section. Then I needed the glass to be highlighted so I positioned two flashes to liven up the glass. And to create a highlight at the glass edge. Then I filled in the front of the glass with more, softer light to create a more even light effect. Food Photography by Guy Hinks.
