I am still very new to photography as I had just recently purchased my 550D 3months ago and am slowing learning all the advanced functions. So please bare with me if any of my queries is "noobish".
My wife is starting up an online business on pastries/cakes and I am responsible of helping her to take professional pictures of her products to be used in her website. I have been doing plenty of online research but will like to seek 2nd opinions from u guys.
Products for photoshoot
- Birthday Cakes
- Fruit Tarts
- Assorted pastries
My Current Setup
Camera: Canon 550D
Lens: 18mm-55mm Basic lens (part of the kit package)
Stuffs I am thinking of buying
1) Light Tent
I am considering 2 light tents as below which falls in my budget. Both includes lights.
- Considering my application, which will you guys recommend?
- Is the light source provided in both package good?
Apparantly, I missed out on my free tripod as my redemption period had expired after enquiring with Canon. Therefore I need to purchase a tripod. The tripod will mainly be used indoors to take pictures of the products in the light tent. Therefore the tripod must allow movement vertically up/down to take top view pictures.
Question: Considering my application, which will you guys recommend?
I believe it is pretty obvious that I need to purchase a Macro lens for my application.
Question: Considering my application, can you guys please recommend a budget Macro lens which is mountable to my 550D?
Am I missing out on anything?
Many Thanks for your help!
