Perception vs reality: A behind the scenes look at one of my burger pics

Things aren't always quite what they seem...

FoodTribe, I thought I would share a little glimpse of what happens behind the scenes... sometimes.

I was having a burger (I know, imagine that... me eating a burger) and of course I want to get a great pic for you. I set up and took a dozen or so pictures, but was not happy with any of them. I decided to completely reset and do an old school picture. After several prop adjustments and several pictures later I got the one I wanted.

Now it's time to eat – well almost. I have to do a bit of an unset and reset to eat. Some of you will understand.

Now it is time to devour this beautiful burger. So I give it a little press and decide where to take the first bite. And that is when reality sets in. After taking so long to get my desired picture, the bottom bun literally disintegrated in my hand and it was all down hill in fast time.

Here is my reality... I have suffered for my art

Does anyone else know what I am on about and know my pain? Let me know in the comments below. Stay wonderful FoodTribe. I love you all!

  • Since I usually take pictures of desserts, they are already cold and everything is fine! But for food, yes! They get cold and miserable πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  • Yes. I’ve had several times taken pictures and then the food gets cold, so then I microwave it just thinking I will warm it up a bit only to have the cheese melt and slide off into a gooey.... not a good kind of gooey.... mess.
