Between photoflood or flash, which one is preferable for still-life photography, such as food photography? How many units should I acquire?
The effects between the two would not be much different, the choice depends on several considerations: beverages do have movements, and there are subjects which can change under heat such as ice cream, you would be better off using flash. Due to the short duration of flash illumination it can freeze subject movements, and can also prevent a subject like ice cream from melting. There is no hard and fast rule regarding the number of lamps required; personally I would use one main light, then sparingly add lights to fill in the darker areas, or to bring out the main features.
