Got bitten by an urge to take some high-key shots of food yesterday, so I went shopping... Didn't get round to it until this afternoon though, and this was my favourite of the batch that I'll post over the next few days.

I have a very basic flash unit that I have a 'permanent loan' of. It doesn't synch with the camera's exposure modes as such (unless I'm doing something wrong) so I have to switch into Manual mode, take the shutter speed to around 1/1000th of a second (for the wider apertures that these shots were mostly taken with) and experiment with flash bounces and shutter speeds until I get the exposure I want...
