Just recently I was talking with Greg and how I needed to improve my food photography. He mentioned that we both tend to just do “grab shots” instead of treating it as a real subject. I know food stylists use other things to stand in for food, although I guess in ads you have to use the real thing. But, just like a glamour shot for a person, you can make the food prettier.
Today someone sent me this link to a site where someone took 100 pictures of food out of the package, compared to the package photo. Some are ver striking to me like this or this. However, it’s interesting to look at all of them. It’s in German, but you don’t need to speak the language to know that what you’re getting inside isn’t the same as what you’re told you’re getting.
