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.

Thanks a lot, jerk.

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.

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



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

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.

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
