Food Stylist's

food stylist is the art of making the food look attractive in the finished photograph. The main difference between how a home cook or chef may present food and what a stylist does is the time and effort a stylist takes to carefully and artfully arrange the food. Also required is the visual know how, and ability to translate the perception of taste, aroma and appeal that one gets from an actual dish, to a two-dimensional photograph.

tricks Food Stylists use:

There are a number of great tricks that food stylists use. Cake can for instance be made fresh with a spritz of hair spray. Glue and hair conditioner can be used instead of milk to keep cereal looking fresh. Soap bubbles can be used by adding to milk to give it that freshly poured look. Plastic ice cubes are often used in drinks to prevent melting under the harsh lighting. Glycerin, liquid glucose, and motor oil are often used to get juicy appearances on meats or create sheen and syrupy effects. Lemon juice is widely used for foods that react to oxygen or oxidie easily if out in the open for a while, such as lettuce and meats that rot easily. Food photgraphy plays a major role in the selling of magazines and cookbooks and as such a professional Food Stylist will always be in demand.

What a shame to do that kind of thing to fresh fruits-- but I understand the need for photographic purposes.

Now for a nice glass of milk-- without the soap.
