Table-Top Lighting a la David Ziser

Personally, I like to preserve the memories of my desserts in the form of archival love handles. But David Ziser, over at Digital Pro Talk, would rather just photograph his food before eating it.

Using a Canon 40D -- and only the camera's built-in, pop-up flash -- he made this photo. It is lit pretty much entirely by that little pop-up flash, too. Can you reverse engineer his clever little on-camera-off-camera lighting trick?

(Click here to see how he did it.)
