We have asked Owen, what equipment kit he’d recommend to help you take the best food photography shots. The following list is his personal set he goes for.
Canon 6D – full frame camera, with excellent low light capabilities.
Canon 100mm L Macro Lens – luxury glass, incredible build quality & 100mm focal length for distortion-free images.
Manfrotto 190 Tripod with Ball Head – perfectly stable, and capable of minor adjustments.
Lowepro Camera Bag – carries all my 4 lenses, body & a flash gun.
On the particular food shooting with Zandiya, he also used lighting and colour management accessories.
- 2 x Mosaic Limelite LED Panels – these are adjustable 30×30 panels, plus big and bright enough to make light direction wider – covering more of the shot and eliminating shadows.
- 2 x Mosaic Diffusers – which make a much more pleasing, soft light effect.
- 2 x Calumet air-cushioned stands.
- X-Rite Colorchecker Passport – for perfect colour reproduction.
