The camera I use to photograph my food is a Canon EOS 60D. I use a 50mm 1.8 lens and, when I need a really close shot, I have a 50mm 2.8 Macro lens. I always shoot in natural light. For really low light conditions where I need wide shots, I have a Canon 17-55mm 2.8 lens.
This woman designs beautiful camera bags that do not look like camera bags. I have one and I love it.
