  My guess would be that clarity and color are the most important aspects of food photography. Tripod and good lighting. I have never done this type of work but it would be interesting.
Good luck

  silicon spray helps the food look better, only problem with that is you don't get to sample it afterwards. I did some shots for a restuarant with $48 entree's and everyhting had to be tossed after the shot. My mouth was watering

  Good for keeping dust off of very old threads. Most any hardware supply. Maybe auto parts too, since it's good for keeping the weather striping around your car windows from aging too quickly and cracking.
