This page includes what gear, editing programs, etcetera I use when creating my recipes and general content.
The camera I use now is a Canon 200D, but I started out using my dad’s old smaller Canon S110. I have two lenses, one zoom 18-55mm lens and one EF-s 60mm macro lens. I started out using the zoom lens, but now I only shoot using the macro lens. Also, I use a Canon BR-E1 controller when taking photos as then you don’t need to touch the camera and by mistake “shake” it.
I shoot all my photos in raw and edit them in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC. For videos, I edit them with Hitfilm Express.
For over two years I shot all my photos in my room on my window counter. Autumn 2018, my mum had the brilliant idea of turning our computer room, which hosted three gaming computers for me and my brothers to play on and use, to my photo studio. Yes, I have been quite the gamer. Anyhow, we ended up moving two of the computers two other parts of the house, which was no problem as both of my two older brothers have moved out. My studio consists of my old desk with my computer and a table consisting of two IKEA FINNVARD trestles with shelves and MELLTORP White Marble patterned tabletop.
Also in autumn 2018, I started shooting and experimenting with artificial light. I used a cheap studio light from “VidaXL”. Now I use a daylight kit from Fotobestway “easy folding”. Furthermore, I use a Manfrotto 190 tripod and I have a polarisation filter “slim” from Kenko.
Yup, this is all the props I use when photographing. We cleared out half a bookshelf for me to store my props in.
My backdrops are DIY. I basically painted 60×60 plywood pieces with different matt hobby paints. I used a natural sponge a dabbed on the paint to create a nice pattern. Here is what two out of my three backgrounds look like:
And that’s about it! If you have any questions just drop a comment, email me or DM me on Instagram.
