The back drop in this picture is suited for it because I wanted the picture to come off as bold with bold colors and with a black background I think that it is the perfect base for a bold picture with strong colors.
I took the image in a light box so the light is coming from all angles. I added some shadows and some highlights to the image to make the dry ice steam pop out more.
For props I used a wood cutting board and the box of cereal which was in the bowl. The cutting board was mainly there to have a base for the bowl and add help make the picture pop.
