Hello Sam,I'm hoping to be a professional photographer in Scotland. Can you tell me what lighting you use for your food photography?

Sam Lim Photography Answer:

For on location lighting, I normally use 1 speedlight (nikon flash) paired with a 43” umbrella and a silver reflector for most of my shots. If there’s available light then I use it to my advantage. If I’m in the mood, then I add another speedlight for fill or highlights. 

For commercial, I use a light tent and around 3-5 speedlights.
