Testing breakfast foods

What's a better way to spend a Saturday morning than making test shoots of breakfast food.  Before eating anything or drinking any coffee. It was a test of temptation resistance, of which I lasted a good 10 minutes till I devoured the test images, I mean test food. 

Things I learned from the test shoot.

  • I need larger V Flats.  I currently 32 x 40s, which is good for small table top light modification.  But when I wanted to modify it to make manipulated light, aka, light breaks, I found them short coming. 
  • I should have added a small white bounce card to the right to give the bagel sandwich some light fill.  Although the white coffee cup did give a little fill.  Just a smidge.
  • I need to larger base set props, more marble, better wood, for larger sets.
