Hey, PPO! You always post beautiful food pr0n I was wondering what your photo setup is like. Do you have a micro-studio or do you use a countertop? Or something else? Do you have special lighting equipment? Would love some tips Thanks.

Thanks Bakechef. I hope they leave the vids up, but I've added one to my favorites if they don't.
Man... I snap a few pics with my point-and-shoot before I chow down. No wonder his pics are so crisp. I don't break out the tripod unless my chronograph is screwed on top of it, lol.

More times than not, a 18-55 kit lens and a flash are all ya need. A 50mm prime and off camera flash = even better If you can really bounce the light it helps even more. In the sample pic, it looks like nice natural lighting. Hardest part is really avoiding a lot of shadows.
