While I may be accused of this being too similar to last round, this wouldn't have qualified last round, as it wasn't in a garden, but in a butterfly centre.

Now I feel hungry again, and I only just ate.

Thanks a lot, jerk.

[:D]

Just wanted to apologise for not voting in the last round btw, had a bit of a hectic week and completely missed it.

I worked on commercials for McDonalds and Marks & Spencer and in this country the process is a little different. Not sure how still shoots are done but with television adverts the product you see in the advert is completely inedible. Because they couldn't be touched up in post like in stills, the food was made by food technicians. The apple pies in the M&S ad were covered all over with egg yolk to give a shiny effect. So much yolk and other products in fact that I was told if I were to take a bite of one I'd probably instantly throw up.

So no different than normal then?

Yeah, the interesting thing about the shoots is the "Food Stylist" guy IMO - I saw another video that went into more detail, from a time when (in the US at least) you could be a bit more "artistic" with what went into a ad picture of food. things like barely cooking the burger, searing the lines on with a skewer, using cardboard shims to prevent seepage and retain structure.

I think there was a way to make food look hot by putting a tampon in water and microwaving it, then hiding that behind the plate.




Quint -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (1/8/2012 9:53:48 PM)

I think my post got deleted last night - probably my fault let's face it. Anyway here is 'Say Cheese(cake)!':

[image]http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c116/Quint_/SayCheesecake-2.jpg[/image]

Taken with my iphone but I cropped it and adjusted the contrast and saturation.

Paws in the celebrations.

sanchia -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (3/8/2012 9:22:19 AM)

At the moment I have nothing and no ideas either. I may have to think on this one but at the moment I may bow out on this go.




Hobbitonlass -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (3/8/2012 9:31:12 AM)

Aww, hope you come up with something Sanch, make it as tenuous as you want [;)]




sanchia -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (3/8/2012 2:39:33 PM)

Tenuous it is,

A Little Nutty.




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (3/8/2012 3:20:16 PM)

I haven't picked up a camera yet, but it's got me sorta stumped. The wee mans having a nap so i may try and have a play around [:)]

edit; with my camera BTW [:D]

The fork being on the right is disturbing my inner etiquette-o-meter.




Hobbitonlass -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (13/8/2012 11:05:27 PM)

I will come up with something by the weekend! (Especially since it was my topic)

Has it got people stumped? [&:]




Hobbitonlass -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (16/8/2012 8:13:58 PM)

Not mushroom in here...

Chief Wiggum -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (16/8/2012 8:46:57 PM)

Love it!

Just a quick reminder just under a week to go before you need to get the entries in





Rebenectomy -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (18/8/2012 7:42:58 PM)

Beans, beans, good for the heart...

Chief Wiggum -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (21/8/2012 7:05:38 PM)


Right, I think I've got everybody's photo in the opening post, if not give me a shout and I'll correct my idiocy.

and as another reminder - there's just one day left to get your photos in, so get your entries in.

nb. I have started a new job so will try to keep on top of the competition, I may not do things on the dot of 5pm anymore, but I should be able to do things on the right day




hubu_phonk -> RE: OTPC - Round 6 -Food, Glorious Food (22/8/2012 3:39:44 PM)

Hope i'm not too late...
