Food Photography Starter Kit
But if you want to start with or upgrade to a more comprehensive gear, check out the list below of cameras, lenses and accessories we use.
We use the 5D Mark II for food photography and the 70D for the videos we make.
The 5D Mark II has a full frame sensor which generally yields higher quality images. The 70D is also great but has a cropped sensor. Beyond food photography, it’s good to have both cameras because the 70D and its cropped sensor can be particularly helpful for telephoto and portrait photography where the additional reach can be handy.
At some point, we will upgrade from the 5D Mark II to the 5D Mark III which is the newer model.
We use the Fancierstudio 2400 Watt Lighting Kit. We find the soft boxes very useful for photography and videography instead of using a flash for photos and another lighting solution for the videos. But if you don’t have enough room, many get by with just the Lowel EGO Digital Imaging, Tabletop Fluorescent Light Unit.
