Re: Which DSLR for Professional Product and Food Photography - part II
In reply to photolando, May 11, 2014

Thanks Steve and Mike for your helpful replies and good wishes.

I appreciate that Food photography and Product photography takes a lot of preparation, thought and time, as does Product photography. It is about having the skills for Styling, Composition and Lighting and a good Business mindset too. However to save myself from purchasing another DSLR in the near future, I really need to get the camera choice right. I want to get one asap as I want to use my Strobes for Product photography, which is an equal passion as Food photography.

Thanks Mike, as you have just answered a question on technique, that I was only just thinking about, with regards to achieving the desired shallow DoF in Food photography; which was that a full frame camera will help a little more in achieving shallow DOF than a crop sensor.

Therefore it appears that I would be better off with the 6D or D610, or used 5d MKII, which will narrow my choices for Lenses.

Thanks again,
