Food photography is fun.

I feel a bit limited using a Nikon 35mm ƒ/1.8 DX for it but my other lenses are not bright enough or focus close enough to obtain a shallow depth of field. If I were not thinking about changing my photo gear to something else than Nikon DX system, I would definitively buy the 85mm macro lens.

I also need to work on lighting the food. The light is not soft enough when it hits the broccoli at the foreground. It's time to invest in a good flash...
