Default MMM good

I had a thought last week while it was so cold to make some good ol' fashion Mulligan Stew and well I can show you how good it looks and I will tell you how good it tasted MMMM Good better than Campbell or any other stock..

Photos of fresh vegetables and even sliced meat can look quite appetizing. However when you mix it all up like this and add to that its out of focus, it looks like something someone threw up.

This is probably a worse case pic, but it looks somewhat more edible because of the pot being included.

Food shots can be difficult, that would be a good idea for the shootout.

Indeed, "food shots" can be difficult... but it is great challenge, and sure takes some real skill and thinking... Some food photos can be taken while the food is still in a pot, some foods seem to do better as portion on a plate. For example, my wife makes the best "Steak and Guinness Pie", we also eat a lot of Indian food. These dishes and more really provide a great and fun challenge, at least in my opinion.

All the best.

Food shots can be fun especially when you use the tricks used by the pros. Like mashed potatoes for ice cream, searing iron for steaks on the bbq, glazing things with oil to look shiny and juicy. There are a million tricks to make food look good enough to eat. Sharpshot if you compare your dish of food to that of Ordo's you come up short again. Your plate looks greasy and the vegetables have no color at all. Carrots are bright orange, beans a bright green as those in Ordos shot. So its not just the plate or pot that makes the pic its the food itself. It should look appetizing.
