    Smile Food photos for a menu ????

    Hello everyone,

    I've been asked to do some photos for a New local Taco Shop.
    I'm very 'New' at this stuff and anything to shorten my learning curve will help a ton.

    My question is this:Along with my D700.
    I've got the following lens to choose from:
    50mm/1.8
    14-24mm/2.8
    70-200mm/2.8

    Along with the Menu shots, I'm also going to be covering the 'Grand Opening' too.

    Thanks for all your help!!!
    Roger

    See if you can get a 35-75mm zoom. You do not need a fast lens unless it's in the evening. But for most of the shots your 50mm lens should do just fine, The 14-24 is a little wide, on a full frame camera, for the Taco Shop shoot, unless it's being used in the DX mode.

    You don't need zooms to shoot food. Choose for high aperture. Also, try macro lenses. With them, you can make very interesting shots.

    Hello guys. You know, cooking has never been one of my hobbies but we all have to cook quite often. It pushed me to read Multi cooker reviews and try to choose a good one for me. Unfortunately, I realized that I need it quite late and I hope my lifestyle will change after this purchase.
