I will be helping a friend to shoot a food menu for a company, It's going to be a small variety of stuff (maindish, appertizer, dessert) all arranged as complete meals to shoot by a chef..
I will most probably do the shoot in a studio, any sifus can advice the lighting on the details. And which lens is good to use, Any SPECIFIC advice ?

will be taking something similar to these link
