Tuck in that napkin, and leave your appetite behind, because once again it's time to explore the marvels of... Bad Restaurant Food Photography!
The purpose of a restaurant is to make food that will entice customers. The purpose of a professional photographer is to capture beautiful images. Why do they do it? What I discovered from an assignment for Coed Magazine is that some restaurants insist on taking their own photos of food found on the menu. The result is sometimes the opposite of what was intended: it actually repulses people from eating at the establishment. Simple Formula: If you're not a good photographer, don't take pictures of the food you're selling.
Always look both ways before crossing the road. Otherwise a big truck might run you over -- and this is what the result would look like.
Before you come in and eat at our restaurant, why don't we show you what a rhesus monkey's butt looks like? A monkey's butt might work as good SEO content, but not as a wrapped sandwich.
Have you ever seen those photos of meth addicts' mouths? If you haven't, this is what it looks like. Kids, don't do drugs!
Who Took A Bite Of My Sandwich?
I walked away for a moment and goddamn person took a goddamn bite of my goddamn sandwich.
