The best food photographers know that equipment and technique are vitally important. Below are photography resources that I use and love and hope will help you as well. I will keep this list updated with my latest and best finds and recommendations.
Food Photography Tools-
Nikon D5100 – this is the camera I have been using for several years. Great for those just starting out as well as for the experienced photographer. The latest model, Nikon D5500 looks wonderful as well.
Nikon 50mm, 1.4G– my favorite lens for food photography. I love the drool-worthy photos this lens consistently produces. The Nikon 50mm, 1.8G is a little less expensive and almost as good.
Nikon 35mm, 1.8G– the first lens I started using for food photography. I use this often and it is particularly useful for overhead shots.
San Disk 32 GB Extreme 90 Memory Card- this high-quality memory card is a great all-purpose card that holds a lot of photos. I purchase two and keep one as a spare. I prefer buying two smaller cards versus one larger card because in the event the card isn’t reading (e.g. not working), I have a spare.
