More Of A Food Critic's Absolute Worst Food Photography
If you've ever tried to snap a photo of your dinner plate in a dark dining room you know it can be difficult to make things look as delicious as they taste. For full reviews I have a professional photographer, but when I'm out and about on my own time, all I have is my iPhone.
Does your office fridge hold secrets like ours?
The results (as my commenters have so politely pointed out) are sometimes amateurish, and others completely unappetizing. Last year we did a blog post compiling my worst food photos and after a quick scan of my photo albums it looks like I haven't gotten much better...
Every Sunday Cock and Bull puts on a blue plate special that's all over the map. One Sunday it's sloppy joes, the next chicken-fried steak, and the next it's sour cream enchiladas. This beef stir fry with red peppers however, combined with the bar's notorious low lighting made this shot completely impossible.

I was hoping a photo showing the internal ingredients of this sandwich would help demonstrate how delicious it was. I think we can agree Fadia's chicken shawarma looks much better all wrapped up.

I know you're not supposed to use a flash in food photography, but sometimes there's just not enough light. The blast from my iPhone in this one looks like gold leaf draped over the gravy.
