Maybe it's because I've been looking at so many blogs with gorgeous photos. Maybe it's because one of the brides who came over for a consultation last week had a small digital camera with her that could run circles around my little old canon elph.
I guess it had been rolling around in my mind--this feeling of wanting to make my photos better--when I looked deeper into a lovely blog that is new to me called cookworm. I saw she had won a contest on Food + Photography (congratulations!) and when I clicked through it was as if a whole new world had opened up to me...they listed which cameras each photgrapher had used.cookworm's really great photographs andJim, who is an amazing photographer, has a big Canon EOS1D Mark 2 (with a hyper alloy battle chassis and an overhead cam drive). It's always looked big and complicated to me but he was thinking about selling it and now I am thinking about learning to use it and maybe even purchasing a macro lens for it. I'd like to be able to take better pictures of my jewelry, of my food, of all the things that inspire.

May I ask what kinds of cameras do you all use for the kinds of work you do? And what kind of accoutrements do use with it?
