Below you can see the setup inside the box. I used a base and a background from the SB Prints Grunge Collection but then I zoomed in so much on the pistachio pie that the base didn't show at all and the background was very minimal. When I layed the plate flat on the base of the SHOTBOX, the piece of pie looked as if it was sloping away from the front of the plate so I placed a light puck underneath the back side of the plate to prop it up at an angle. That did the trick and adjusted the perspective of the pie so that it no longer appeared to be disappearing into the back of the plate.
