Have you ever wondered why the burger you ordered looks so much less appetizing than it did in the photo on the menu? Well, that’s probably because the photo on the menu wasn’t actually a picture of a burger. The art of food photography is fascinating, and it’s a field in which most things are not what they appear to be.
When it comes to photographing enchiladas, most food stylists actually use instant mashed potatoes as stuffing. This gives the enchiladas the appearance of being filled with delicious flavor. They then add meat to the ends to stay true to the food.
