      Mahalie - no prob! You can read the whole story on my food photography blog (URL above).

      Nika - The tota lights are quite reasonable. There are cheaper solutions, but for the money, you get really nice light with these and they are manageable. the only thing I'm not a huge fan of are the stands which are kind of wobbly (as you can see, it's not particularly straight in the picture). One Tota-light + Tota-brella kit is about $195 on Amazon. But, you might be able to pick them up cheaper on Adorama or even ebay.

      Inky - I haven't found it to be a problem... but then, I usually shoot pretty quickly and get the lights back off. I personally like the continuous light, while I'm still learning, because I can see the results.

      How about a new group for in-house (food photography) set-ups. I've been considering documenting my improvised set-up as well.

      @inkyfingerz: too avoid the heat problem, one could use studio lights which use energy saving bulbs or a professional studio flash. Like Lariffic I prefer good continuous light and as the subject of our photography hardly moves (I hope so!), a flash is not really necessary.
