Cameras, lenses, accessories and all other equipment we use for our photography and videography shared on our blog and YouTube channel.
All the photos on Just One Cookbook were taken by me unless it’s mentioned otherwise. Mr. JOC reviews restaurants and wines and he takes the pictures for his special posts.

PHOTOGRAPHY EDITING SOFTWARE
I love using natural light; however I also use studio light when it’s too dark to take pictures.
Mr. JOC’s Videography
We started our YouTube Channel in September 2013. All the videos on Just One Cookbook were filmed and edited by Mr. JOC. Doing videos is quite tricky, there aren’t many books that help you get started vs. photography. We find the best resource for learning how to make video are tutorials from individuals, such as Learning DLSR Video and YouTube Channels.
- 2 Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GH4K (sold 2 70Ds)
- Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM Lens (Use this lens to eliminate auto-focus noise. It’s capable of low apertures to give the video a film look.)
VIDEO EDITING SOFTWARE
All the videos are recorded in our kitchen using Cool Lights for lighting. Based on his research they are similar to Kino Flo but much cheaper and just as good (we never actually compared the footage shot with Cool Lights vs. Kino Flo).
