    Can you do more when you have no natural light available? I swear – this new home I moved into was occupied by Vampires as there is no freakin' light here

    Very nice! Wonderful and subtle lighting tips. These can even be used beyond food!

    BTW, your channel is great, Joanie. Such a fresh perspective with a positive vibe. I've been photographing food for years but love watching your videos. There's always something new to learn, and a little bit of inspiration and motivation can go a long way, even for those of us who may already have the "hang of things" 🙂

    Sadly I rarely get food products to shoot for clients, but all your lighting and setup techniques can be applied to all kinds of product- tabletop photography. Thanks Joanie, your enthusiasm is infectious !! 🙂

  15. Mauria Photography says

    This is amazing. I will definitely be trying this out. I like fall off in certain situations.

  16. yeinhorn says

    Isn't that against inverse square law? Moving the light further should give u less falloff

  17. Ken Holloway says

    Thanks for the light lesson. Love the fall off and how it adds depth. Your food always looks so amazing. Can we get the soup recipe??? The spicy version?

  18. Jackelin Slack says

    Thanks for another great video, Joanie!

  19. Sherif Seoudy says

  20. Hala Allam says

    Love this 👌👌

  21. Jess- Una Familia Común says

    Thanks every video a Master Class

  22. Todd Kuhns says

    In my schooling as well as going back and teaching college a "specular"highlight" was simply defined as a direct reflection of the light source. In the same way you could create a "specular shadow" by reflecting a black card into a subject. It was often confusing in the word specular because students compared it to a diffused light source or diffused surface of their subject.

    Great video, as always. You're not just a "fix it in post" photographer and the industry needs more of what you're doing. Thanks.
