For the last couple of months I've been struggling with trying to take the "perfect" picture and lighting has been a struggle because 9 times out of 10, I get an incredibly stupid shadow and I've had to resort to some serious calisthentics to get the perfect shot.
I do most of my cooking at night after work, and unfortunately it's not the best time for lots of natural light. So I opted to bite the bullet and invest in some lighting. One of the blogs that I read recommended the Lowel Ego 2 light set. After a couple of weeks of hemming, hawing, and lots of reading of reviews - I bit the bullet and ordered it.
I'm looking forward to getting, and just in time for my Xmas recipes. I'll let you know when I get it, and I'll do a full review of the system for you.
Update: Jan 2014 - Although I ordered this, it never came to me and it was probably the best thing ever because I ended up taking photography lessons and realized how inadequate this kit would have been in very short order.
