Shooting burgers

You want lies with that?

September 1st, 2012

We all know that when at fast food restaurants, what you see is not what you get. I recently saw a YouTube video from McDonald's on how they make their burgers look so great (and not flat) on the photos. You can actually achieve a lot but simply pushing the contents of the burger (lettuce, gherkin slices) closer to the edge to make it visible to the camera. The image shows my (mixed) results. Clearly, making a "stock" burger perfect requires a bit more than that.

A tall and nice burger. Still looks a bit dull though.
