12 May Food photography, what is in the photo really edible?
Why does the food you buy home always don’t look good on the packaging?
When ordering at a restaurant, the real thing is always far from the picture on the menu?
Because there is a very skilled photographer between you and the food.
In order to make the food in the photos more stimulating to the taste buds of the viewers, food photographers have used various “methods.” In a group of food photos from foreign countries, there are not only delicious foods that look delicious, but also these delicious materials, revealing the “truth” of Shenzhen food photography in one second: looking delicious, not necessarily all eat.
here is the image.
Can you smell the champagne scent wafting from the photo? Tell you the formula: water + soy sauce + effervescent tablet. The three-dimensional food is supported by small blue plastic pieces.
Ice cream, the love of my heart, I really want to taste it! In fact, they are the result of a mixture of mashed potatoes, meat oil, sugar and food coloring.
From the photos, you can see that the food is shaped and fixed with toothpicks and pull-strings. To make the grapes look more textured, talcum powder is used. It is absolutely refreshing to eat a bite.
The cakes in the picture are decorated with spray paint. It looks creamy, but it is actually shaving cream. It is used because the shaving cream will not melt as quickly as cream, even under the light of a photographic lamp.
In order to make the meat more shiny and more human, the photographer poured motor oil on it. If there are parts that are too red, shoe polish will be used to “dark” its color. The carrots look shiny and fresh, but they don’t know that they have hairspray on them.
Real milk will make the food soggy, but not with polyethylene glue.
Here are some small “ingredients” that are helpful for food photography:
Antacid: An antacid can create a lot of bubbles when placed in soda water.
Shoe polish: Apply shoe polish to baked foods to brighten them.
Cardboard: Clamping cardboard in foods such as hamburgers can increase its volume.
Colored candles: After the colored candles are melted, they can be made into sauces.
Cotton ball: Immerse the cotton ball in water, microwave it for a while after taking it out, and place it behind the food to create a steaming effect.
Dishwashing liquid: The fusion of dishwashing liquid and liquid can create bubbles on the surface of the beverage.
Fabric protector: Spray the fabric protector on the surface of the biscuits so that the jam will not penetrate into the biscuits.
Glue: If you want to take pictures of cereals made with milk, you can use glue instead of milk.
Glycerin: Glycerin can be applied to the surface of seafood to create a juicy feeling, and it can be mixed with water to create a long dripping effect.
Hairspray: Hairspray can make air-dried food look fresh as ever.
Incense: Incense can add steam effect to shooting.
Lacquer: After the rice is lacquered, it will be shiny and not sticky.
Lemon flavor: can remove the colored handwriting printed on food packaging.
Liquid glucose: The noodles will be fresher when rolled in liquid glucose.
Mashed potatoes: Instead of ice cream, mashed potatoes can easily solve the problem of melting. Food coloring can change its color to represent different tastes; filling mashed potatoes in meat can also increase the volume, and coating layers of food can easily achieve the layering effect. Remember to handle the edges. Don’t wear help.
Motor oil: Motor oil will sparkle in the light and can be used to replace syrup with no color.
Plastic ice cubes: Replace real ice cubes with plastic ice cube shapes so that they won’t melt.
Shaving cream: Shaving cream is more stable than fresh cream, and it is easy to shape, suitable for taking pictures.
Toothpicks: Using toothpicks to support food can be placed in a suitable shape and angle, and it can also increase its volume.
The above is only for taking pictures, you can try it if you want to meet the visual effects.
