We're closing this month's campaign dedicated food photography and thank you for your help so far. Here is the last question:

Are there certain non-photographic tools (such as spray bottles, shiners, etc) that are of assistance when photographing food?

Yes of course, there are lots of them:substances such as acetone to brighten the fruit, sticks of wood to support and add volume to certain foods, fishing line to tie things; artificial rocks of ice, etc. etc.
I use to work with first line Nikon equipment.

When you need to darken the skin on a chicken, duck, turkey, etc. without fully cooking, then use a little sugar and a blowtorch.

clear shoe polish on hard fruits like apples, then buff it to make them super shiny, coating other softer fruits with oil to make them have a sheen also helps. I'm sure there are all sorts of tips out there. I can't wait to read more. :)
