I love photography and I am more passionate about photography–especially food photography—as days go by. I receive a lot of comments, questions, and emails about my food photography: what camera I use, how I shoot my pictures, etc., so I’ve decided to share some of the common Q&A’s here below.
Q: What camera do you use?
A: Prior to March 24, 2007, I used Canon Digital Elph SD450. Starting March 2007, I shot with Canon Digital Rebel XT 8MP Digital SLR, and as of July 2009, I shoot with Canon 500D or Canon EOS Digital Rebel T1i.
Q: What are the tricks to great lighting?
A: I shoot all my food pictures close to the windows (with the blinds up) or in my patio (I never take food pictures with direct sunlight casting on my food because it’s too harsh).
Q: What kind of lenses do you use for food photography?
A: I use the kit lens which is Canon EF-S 18-55mm f3.5-5.6, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, and Canon EF 50mm f1.4 macro lenses. I use the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 mostly nowadays.
Q: What are the tips and tricks to take great food photography?
A: My food photography is really simple and minimalist. I like to focus on the food more than anything else. I use mostly white dinnerware and white background to call out the color and texture of the dishes I present. I love the food photography in Donna Hay Magazine–clean, crisp, and sophisticated–so I try to replicate the look and feel of that style.
