Not sure what people are going to think about this. Comfort food means so many things to so many people, it's hard to say what really counts. I guess that really means its a food free study challenge.

I bought all of the food in this shot specifically for the photo (and then to have a wonderful dinner). While the ribs (premade, I don't know how to make good ribs) were heating up and the sweet potato fries were in the oven, I prepped my area by setting up one flash to reflect off an umbrella from camera right. Another flash was reflected via a large white board to the left of the plate. Got the light down, then placed the coleslaw in the bowl, and poured some of the beer (to even out the temp of the glass and make sure it was condensating. Once the food was warm I carefully placed it all, then took various photos with different perspectives.

In the end, I found that I enjoyed this one with the slight tilt the most, as it feels a bit more dynamic.
