    I spend most of my time shooting street, wildlife, landscape/cityscape photography. I love to travel and I'd like to add some food photography to that. With travel, and at home, I don't have a studio and that type of photography has never been my focus. Where can I get good advice on techniques and also on gear for easy set up food photography. While traveling, it usually involves shooting at the table or wherever the cooking is happening. I know little things like using napkins as reflectors but wanted to maybe get a little more in depth advice. Thanks.

    The lighting of food is very important and some positions of the light might be surprising to you such as having the light slightly behind the subject. I have gotten my best, though not up to top notch status by sitting at a table next to an outdoor window and using exterior illumination to provide the lighting. While there may be others that are appropriate, you might like "Feeding the Eyes" in this group of tutorials. He is a master of lighting
