Today marked another milestone in my stock photography career with the acceptance of my 500th. image on iStockPhoto. I had hoped to reach this goal by the end of 2010, but soon realized that my goal was a bit too ambitious and would cause both the quality of my portfolio and my family’s holiday to suffer if I actually met it. So, today, I finally hit the 500 image mark, a bit late, but happy nonetheless.
This strawberry shortcake is the second in a series I did one evening in my basement. Recently I’ve been doing all my food photography with window light with a setup similar to what you see in this post, but this series was done with one SB-900 speedlight mounted in my Lastolite Softbox, and I’m happy with the results. Below is a vertical shot of the same shortcake; all images are available for licensing on iStockPhoto:
