Photographing food

I did a photo shoot for a restaurant this week!  I knew I would be photographing the food, alcoholic beverages, the staff, & the restaurant.  Instead of buying or renting a $300 light table, I bought a @$40 "tent".  I rented lights, and set up a make shift studio in the corner.  I have to say, even following all of the lessons that I learned on this in school, and following the guidelines given by the guys at the camera store, this was a difficult process!  It was exciting to have a challenging photo shoot! The part that made it difficult was adjusting the camera with the lights!  I have had a ton of experience with the strobe and adjusting my camera, but I had never rented lights before! I'm exciting to start editing and looking through the pictures!
