Cameras that I use regularly
The Canon Rebel t6i
Why I love it: 24.2 Megapixels and full HD video capabilities in MP4 format in a lightweight and fairly small body for a great price.
The Canon 7D Mark ii
Why I love it: high-speed continuous shooting at 10 frames per second, 65 point auto-focus system, impeccable color handling.
My Favorite Macro Lenses
Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro Fixed Lens
Why I love it: To me, shooting macro is essential to outstanding product photography, especially if your product is handmade and detail oriented. If you spent eight hours stitching an Elvis Presley portrait into a fabric pendant, you want the ability to showcase that! This is a great beginning macro lens for tabletop photography that will capture a 1:1 (life size) magnification ratio.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro Fixed Lens
Why I love it: Quick and efficient auto-focus at stunning 1:2 magnification. Again, this lens is fantastic for highlighting and focusing on (pun intended) small details.
Photography tools that I use and recommend
Manfrotto Xtra 3-Way Head Tripod
Why I love it: The 3-way head kit gives you complete control with minimal fuss and the legs are fantastically sturdy. Trust me, it is not worth it to skimp on a tripod. Even the most trusted names' simpler models can be flimsy and ultimately further complicate your photographic process. Have you ever tried to get a pour shot while using your knee to keep your tripod from slipping on the kitchen floor? Yeah.
Collapsible Disc Light Reflector with Storage Bag
Why I love it: Collapsible reflectors are ideal because their form is malleable and can be bent and twisted into various types of spaces where you might need a small or subtle fill. Similarly, they fold up neatly into a small bag that is easily stored and hidden.
