Product Shooting! – Cookies

Back in May 2010 I Blogged about how to make a Small Product shooting table, So in this post I would like to show you my use of this Table, so I setup the table on a Flat stable spot and then i set up my lighting, I had one Light Above the Product (Cookies) and then I had one Light setup aimed at the plate about the level of the plate. the Camera was set to ISO 100 at F22 for 1/10 sec on the shutter shot All in RAW file format for the best control over the image in Post, The only adjustment I made to the image was in the curve a and that was like really a very slight change, and I got the image below
