If so, what kind of lens are you using?

28mm 2.8 that does 1:4 on a crop body, but I also use 50mm and 80mm(Once in a while I'll need an ultrawide).

we have a food thread here:

I use my macro 100mm f/2.8 for food, gives detail textures and nice bokeh. Actually 18-55mm is kit lens is also good enough.

I shoot food during every hunting season! :D

Later on when I am taking pics on the food on my plate, I just use my 85L or 70-200 2.8 II, with or without tubes.

My father has been shooting food professionally for 20+ years. These days he primarily uses a 24-105L, 16-35L or 70-200/2.8L (though I think the most one is mostly used for portraits). His recommendation was the main reason I spent the extra money for the 6D kit, it is a great lens though I barely use it...

It depends on what kind of food you're shooting and what you're shooting it with. A 70-200 didn't keep my camera far enough away from this shot to avoid getting splashed. :D
