35 pics?

I'm sorry but whatever you read or understand about food lighting is wrong. Most of these with back lighting look dead frontally, have ackward shadows thrust forward. You need an enveloping, soft, frontal light from something like a pair of soft boxes or umbrellas.

Here's one taken with a simple dual umbrella set up left & right. Notice the soft frontal lighting, the dimensionality, the natural looking shadows?
