There are many pursuits in life that we trust only to experts. Electrical. Plumbing. Surgery. The cutting of our bangs.
Trust me on that last one.
So why do so many people attempt to photograph the food on the plate in front of them?
True, cameraphones today have the technology to produce great images, but that doesn’t automatically mean we can…especially when hot and cold foods are involved.
Like Hollywood superstars, these foods are airbrushed and artificial.
That’s why your picture of grandma’s green bean casserole or turkey chili or that special cocktail from the bar that you text from your phone or post on Facebook or Twitter often receives such unexpectedly negative comments from your family and friends.
It looks kinda gross. Sorry.
