    So i managed to blag a huge lightbox from work, an old one they used to check transparencies on which prompted these first efforts.

    It's clear that I need some fill lighting, or maybe even the rightfully popular soft box to reflect some of the light to come from above... but for a first effort, handheld, i'm happy(!)

    C&C & tips always welcome.

    I quite like the first one there, that would have done well...

    I think you need to watch the DOF, your Brocolli shot especially since the main bit facing you is OOF. With a lightbox and a tripod setup, you should be able to use any aperture you like.
