Bottom: My final image for the breakfast shoot.   

Top: How I lit the scene…  I cleared the food from the table before I remembered to snap this shot!  :O  
I used a mono light (min. power)  w/ a medium sized soft box aprox. 3 ft. from the scene on the right.  I placed a fill card directly across  from it on the left.  I placed another mono light (min. power) slightly behind the fill card and aimed it at a second fill card in front of the scene.  I used a 3rd mono light (close to max power) w/ a golden-yellowish gel and placed it behind the soft box aprox. 7-8 ft. high.  I aimed it on a white backdrop trying to simulate a golden morning sun light.  For the shoot, I used a cannon 5-D and shot at f/14 @ 125…  ISO 160.  After the shoot, I gained 5lbs and had a massive tummy ache!  Can’t wait for the next assignment!
