I’m super excited to offer you a free food photography webinar – Stop The Overwhelm With Food Photography Equipment.
Every week I get asked what is the best camera and lens for food photography. I get emails with these questions and people in the free Facebook group ask this as well.
Here’s the thing there are so many cameras and lenses to choose from, honestly, it’s just ridiculous. This is why many people are getting overwhelmed. You have hundreds of options.
Then, to make things more confusing, when anyone asks this question on Facebook or other places, you’ll get a wild assortment of responses with people saying all sorts of cameras, phones, and lenses are absolutely the best – and they are all different.
Some will insist on certain brands being THE brand for food photography, this is just not true. The brand they are suggesting is simply their favorite – it doesn’t mean the others aren’t as good.
I’m not the kind of photographer that insists on you buying a new camera all the time, or that you have to have a certain brand either. I’ve had Minoltas, Canons, Nikons, Olympus, and an assortment of other brands. They are all awesome.
What is important though is making sure that your camera has certain features that we use in food photography.
I’m also a huge fan of buying used equipment. I am actually not the type of photographer that runs out to get a new camera every time there is one.
I like to see how that camera performs first, let those that bought it first, use it and see how they like it.
If you are buying used equipment, you really do need to pay attention to certain features the cameras have to make sure they are still up to par with today’s standards.
Along with what camera is the best for food photos, people also ask me what lens is the best for food photography.
It’s actually hard to answer this question because the best lens for a food photos depends on two things – what camera you are putting that lens on and what type of shot you want.
In this webinar I will talk about:
- The 6 main features that are the most important when choosing a camera for food photos
- The difference between cropped sensor and full frame sensor cameras
- How cropped sensor cameras affect our lenses
- The three most popular lens types for food photography and when to use each one
Oh, did I mention this webinar is free?!
