EASY CRANBERRY SAUCE

A reader asked me recently what camera I recommend for food photography. This is a very popular question, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on this along with this super easy cranberry sauce recipe.

First, a quick tip about the recipe:

Technically this recipe has only three ingredients: cranberries, sugar and water. However, I decided to add a hint of cinnamon and it brought the flavors to a whole new level of YUM. A little goes a long way, so taste as you go to be sure the flavors are balanced.

CAMERA FOR FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY

Here’s the truth about cameras – there isn’t a best camera for food photography. The art you produce is about you and your vision, not your camera. Your camera is simply a tool to help you execute your vision and I’ve seen beautiful work from a variety of cameras. Try not to overthink the brand, because they’re all awesome.

This shoot was back in 2015, so I was using a Nikon D7100 and a 50mm 1.8 lens. The camera and lens were an awesome combination together and I absolutely recommend both if you’re on the prowl for a camera and a good lens. The lens is under $200 which is a steal for the quality it produces. If you want to know about other Nikon cameras I’ve shot with, I have a whole post about it listed below.

THE SECRET TO PHOTOGRAPHY

A lot of people think there’s a best camera or a secret trick to beautiful photography, but there isn’t. The only thing that makes your photography improve is PRACTICE. I highly recommend checking out Annie Leibovitz’s Masterclass because she walks you through her creative process and it’s not about the technical stuff at all. It’s quite inspiring.
