I am taking a food photography lighting class this month so this was my first homework assignment using only available lighting which is what I use for all of my food photography. I'm looking forward to learning how to use studio lighting to light food. I do enjoy using available lighting though. I hope you enjoy this I love the simplicity of this sandwich.
