Food Photography

One of the most common questions I get asked by readers is my camera model.  I currently shoot all of my food photos with a Canon Rebel XSI. My lenses of choice at the present moment are my 50mm 1.4 and 60 mm 2.8 Macro. I always shoot in manual (although I rocked auto for months) and in RAW format. I edit my photography in either Lightroom, Photoshop Elements or CS4.

My lighting preference is natural light; however, the fall and winter months can make this quite challenging, so I also utilize a set of Lowel Ego Lights during this time period. I also have a homemade light box that I recently created out of fabric and a box. I really do not use any fancy schmancy equipment pretty much my Canon Rebel, a white bounce board and a tri-pod.

I also get asked about the props in my photos on a regular basis. Most of these items come from Pier 1, Ikea, Target, TJ Maxx and antique stores…all of it is VERY inexpensive. Feel free to email me about specific pieces if they really strike your fancy, I will gladly give you the details.

If you have any specific questions regarding my photos or equipment, please feel free to contact me.
