    This is a really wonderful photo. I like the unhemmed napkins.

    Question??? (If you don't wish to answer,I understand) Did you use a softbox for this shot? And, I saw in the metadata of your camera that the metering was set on Centered. Do you use Centered regularly as opposed to Spot Metering?

    Thanks, these look yummy.

    Pam Rauber I don't have a softbox. This shot was taken with a 40" round diffuser disc in front of my window (behind the cupcakes at about 11 o'clock). I also bounced a small handheld daylight spectrum light from the ceiling. As for the metering, I am actually very new at photography (food or otherwise) and haven't learned about that yet. In fact, I would love to get an explanation on the difference between the options. Hope this helps and thanks for the nice comment!
