Food Photography Gone Wrong

We all probably have seen many examples of bad food photography, but some of the images captured by Harmon Leon at the San Francisco Chronicle top the list of worst food photography.

Check out this quick read here –>>

Obviously, food photography’s purpose is to make the restaurant’s food appetizing, however as you will see, these images backfire in a big way!  Leon has posted several articles about food photography, starting with this story that focuses on restaurants in and around Market Street in San Francisco.

Here’s one of my favorite shots with the caption from the article included.

The restaurant Munch Haven's photo seems to be asking, "How about some pasta topped with whatever was scooped up after that horrific auto accident?"

And finally, check out the first picture on Leon’s second posting that begins with a photo of Sweet and Sour Pork.  Now doesn’t this look delicious!

If you want to see food photography done right, check out Virginia’s own Stewart Photography’s food gallery.  Now there’s something you would want to sink your teeth into.
