The camera I use to photograph my food is a Canon EOS 60D.  I use a 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 really low light conditions where I need wide shots, I have a Canon 17-55mm 2.8 lens.  

This woman designs beautiful camera bags that do not look like camera bags.  I have one and I love it.
