do i need a bunch of expensive new equipment?
Studio strobes, speedlites, or constant lighting is a must, as this course focuses on mastering artificial light.
I do recommend that you have a dSLR with a few lenses, of course this is not 100% necessary to create great food photography, but it is nice not to be restricted by the perspective of a single lens.
One essential piece of equipment is a large diffusor. This can come in the form of diffused roll paper from brands like Lee or (what I prefer and is cheaper) a diffusor panel, which comes as part of a large 5-in-1 oval reflector kit.
Another required item is a tripod. When working with natural light or when styling to the camera a tripod is a must.

Will the photoshop tutorials be easy to follow?
Yes, definitely! I go through each step slowly and you can always pause or rewind the video if needed. For these lessons, I've paid special attention to not overwhelming you with information and only applying what is needed to composite the image.
