A Feast for the Eyes

I have a new found respect for fast food restaurants. I'm not talking about respect for the high calorie, fat infused, but extremely tasty meals that they serve, I'm talking about the kind of food photos they commission photographers to take. I'm sure we've all spotted a poster with a fast food joint's newest and juiciest burger plastered all over the place. And I'm sure our stomachs have involuntarily churned and grumbled at us enough for us to head on over to the counter and buy the damn burger.

That my friends is the power of food photography. The ability to make people salivate from where they stand without even smelling, touching or tasting food.

I really really wanted to learn the art of salivation so I joined the 'Feast for the Eyes' Food Photography Workshop in PCCI under Mark Floro. (I guess I'll get around to writing a little review about the different courses I took at PCCI soon.)

In the mean time, here are some of the shots that I took during the short course on food photography. I hope that I was able to make you guys even a little hungry as you went through some of my pictures.
