You're so right Dawg. I also thought of them after posting! I'm sure there are many more also. I was really thinking of the regulars at the nightly dinner thread.

True, Kay. Any food pic here, we consider food porn! All pics are admired and drooled over!

And our DC folks do it without the help of lipstick, vaseline, or cigarette smoke! (At least, not on the food...)

Serious Eats had a series that gave advice for taking better food fotos. You can probably find a lot of good suggestions in them.

When you look at those pictures, you do have to look with more than just a grain of salt. More like a mouthful.

Ooh yeah, that's the kind of thing I was hoping for. It's a good reminder. I learned just about all that stuff in photography classes. I just have to remember to use it.

Glad it helped. And just like that, taxy, you may have fallen into the Serious Eats "rabbit hole". Isn't that a fun site, though?
