The Dirty Tricks of Food Photographers

Posted on: 27 February 2008

Not to gross you out or anything but…

the Photocritic captured my attention with this recent article:

A peek behind the kitchen door would reveal the sometimes bizarre tools of the food photography trade that transform fresh baked brownies and juicy crown roasts into science fair projects masquerading as culinary delights. Food is among the more difficult of subjects for photographers. The laws of nature guarantee it: Hot foods cool, moist foods dry out, frozen foods melt especially fast under hot lights, vegetables wilt, and fruit turns brown. But determined food photographers rise to these challenges with their extraordinarily inventive bag of tricks.

And yes, that includes motor oil, spray deodorant and and brown shoe polish… [via The Photocritic]

You have to read the article to believe it. And then maybe you’ll want to try a few of these tricks out for yourself.
