Handle: @palatism

Name: Sander Siswojo

Location: Hong Kong

Why Follow: With a focus on close-up photography, Siswojo treks to many of Asia’s top dining establishments, posting detailed highlights of his most memorable meals. Rather than stringing out a whole dinner, or exhibit a single shot of one dish, Siswojo shares several images of a single course, getting up close and person with a piece of wagyu or fat-laced slice of chutoro, or tuna. According to Siswojo, “Close up photography creates a more intimate and personal space between the diner and the food.” We agree.

What’s he shooting on? Nikon D750. It works very well under low lights. The lens that I use is Carl Zeiss 50mm f2 Makro T Planar, and I call it Baby Carl.

Name: Anders Husa

Location: Oslo, Norway

Why Follow: With a focus on Scandinavian cuisine, Husa’s restaurant and travel blog explores the region’s best restaurants by way of standalone features, in addition to guides and maps. “I tell stories from my life as a foodie, and bring my readers into the world that I explore,” says Husa. “I’m always on the lookout for passionate chefs and rumors about great-tasting food.”

What’s he shooting on? I use a Sony A7 II, mostly with a 55mm f1.8 lens. It’s a great camera for both photo and video and even works well in poor light, which can be a challenge in many restaurants.

Favorite Ingredients: Tough question! Since I’m Nordic, though, I really love beets, Jerusalem artichoke, and celeriac. Slow-cooked, or even dehydrated, root-vegetables are king!
