The camera I use to photograph my food is a Canon EOS 60D.  I use a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens and, when I need a really close shot, I have a  50mm 2.8 Macro lens.  I always shoot in natural light.  For low light conditions or where I need wide shots, I have a Canon 17-55mm 2.8 lens.  This lens is what I keep on my camera most of the time. It's a great all around lens. 

 I have a camera bag that does not look like a camera bag.

I love it! It is designed by Kelly Moore and you can get one here.
