for landscape photography, i suggest you purchase a wide angle lens and a set of filters. Since you are a DSLR user your cam will do just fine, but if you want to get into it get at least a medium format camera with a lens below 80 mm

Hi! Im also into food photography (as a sideline) and landscape photography(as a hobby)..:)

for both field you need a good tripod.. when photographing food its good to use tripod cause then you
can rearrange your layout/style with the same angle.. close-up filter also works for me for food photography..
for landscape you'll definitely use tripod for slow shutter..

before buying expensive equipments try to first find alternatives and find time to experiment, like for example, most of the time daylight is better than using softbox when photographing food, white cartolina also works
as backdrop than those expensive product table.. :)

shooting landscape photography taught me everything about exposure, shooting various scenes and finding
the best time to shoot.. don't be limited to what equipment you have, even without ultra-wide angle you
could still shoot landscape with telephoto, I sometimes use 400mm in taking sceneries and for shooting food hehe... :D

i find it hard to make landscape photography as a profession/bizniz cause even top magazine publishers pays
too low for a stock landscape photo..

gudluck! :)
